9th Mediterranean Oil & Gas Forum 2018 Speakers


Wolfgang Peters

fmr Chairman & CEO, RWE Supply & Trading CZ, and Managing Director, The Gas Value Chain Company GmbH

Wolfgang has been working in the oil and gas industry for some 33 years: first with Mobil, then, between 2001 and 2016, with RWE, for both in different senior management positions in a variety of countries. He retired from RWE as CEO of the Czech RWE Supply & Trading CZ a.s. in March 2016. Wolfgang was involved in all parts of the value chain throughout his corporate career. In the late 80ies, he was involved in the “hunt for new elephants”, i.e. new giant field discoveries in frontier areas all over the world. Later, he was twice responsible for market entry into the Dutch end user market, first for Mobil and later for RWE. He negotiated in Turkmenistan, Azerbaijan and Iraq to procure gas to fill the Nabucco pipeline. With Gazprom Export he negotiated and litigated about the adjustment of long-term gas sales agreements. As Eurogas board member he was engaged in gas advocacy. 

Wolfgang now runs his own company: The Gas Value Chain Company (GVC), of which he is the sole shareholder and Managing Director. The value proposition of GVC hinges on Wolfgang’s in-depth knowledge of and experience in the changed European and global gas markets along the entire value chain. It renders i.a. project management services including negotiations and commercial expert support. Wolfgang also works as commercial expert in international arbitrations and mediations. 

Wolfgang also continues his gas advocacy engagement, e.g. by GVC having joined Brussels based Eurogas as the first member in the new category of “liaising members”. He also teaches at the Energy Delta Institute, publishes articles from time to time and is a frequent speaker at gas conferences.
