Operating result RWE Dea

RWE Dea closed the period under review with an operating result of € 153 million. This is € 283 million less year on year, mainly due to the drop in crude oil prices. However, the effect was slightly mitigated by the fact that the company hedged part of its oil production in advance. Earnings also deteriorated in the gas business, although on average, we realised slightly higher prices. The reason for this was the decline in production volumes.
