The “Mining City”
We are headquartered in Leoben, a Styrian city in central Austria, located on the Mur river. The city is known as the “Gateway to the Styrian Iron Road”. It is a local industrial centre and hosts the University of Leoben, which specializes in petroleum engineering, mining, metallurgy, and materials. Leoben was shaped for centuries by the trade in iron and the research in raw materials carried out at the university. Mining traditions still play an important part in city life. Our Leoben office is located vis-à-vis the university. The institution is known for its students from remote corners of the world, and its cosmopolitan and multi-cultural atmosphere. University graduates usually return to their home country to work for the biggest names in the oil, gas & mining industry.
