DEA AG is an international oil and gas company headquartered in Hamburg, Germany. It is a subsidiary of L1 Energy. As of 2014, DEA owns stakes in about 190 oil and gas licenses in 14 countries.[1] The company also operates natural gas underground storage facilities in Germany.[2]

DEA is a derivation from Deutsche Erdöl-Aktiengesellschaft, the original name of the company.

DEA was formerly a subsidiary of RWE, which put DEA for sale in 2013. Wintershall, a consortium of KKR & Co. and Kufpec, and an investment company L1 Energy of Mikhail Fridman made their bids.[1] In March 2014 it was announced that DEA would be bought by L1 Energy for €5.1 billion.[3] On August 22, 2014 Germany's economy ministry approved the sales to Russian tycoon Mikhail Fridman and his co-investors.[4]
