Common questions About SEFE Energy FAQs

Our FAQs provide answers to commonly asked questions about who we are, what we do, our products, and how we work.

Why have you changed your name to SEFE Energy?

As the UK sales arm of SEFE – Securing Energy for Europe, our company name, previously Gazprom Marketing & Trading Retail Limited, has changed to SEFE Energy Limited.

The SEFE name reflects the new role of the SEFE group in securing a reliable source of energy for Europe and driving the green energy transformation.

Who owns SEFE Energy?

SEFE Energy Limited is 100% owned by SEFE Marketing & Trading Limited (based on London), which is 100% owned by SEFE Securing Energy for Europe GmbH (“SEFE”).

Since 14 November 2022, SEFE GmbH and its subsidiaries have been owned by the Federal Republic of Germany, represented by the “BMWK” (Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action).

You can read more about this transfer of ownership, in the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action’s press release, dated 14 November 2022.

Where do you get your gas from and who supplies my gas?

SEFE Energy sources its gas from the same wholesale market as most other suppliers. All trading activity for our customers is undertaken by SEFE Marketing & Trading Ltd - our UK parent company, based in London. The gas we buy on the wholesale market comes from a variety of sources and countries including Norway and Qatar.

What type of businesses do you support?

SEFE Energy attracts a wide range of customers across different sectors, and we know each business has a different set of challenges.

From industrial enterprises and public sector organisations to retail, health care, property groups and everything in between – we work as partners to help our customers achieve their energy goals. Our team of energy professionals can identify and tailor products and services to meet the specific needs of your organisation. 

Where does SEFE Energy operate?

Our UK sales headquarters is based in Manchester, but SEFE Energy also has locations in France and the Netherlands. Our extended sales business within the SEFE group supplies customers in Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands under the name WINGAS.

Our direct parent company, SEFE Marketing & Trading, is headquartered in London and our ultimate parent company, SEFE Securing Energy for Europe (“SEFE”), is headquartered in Berlin. 

While the core of SEFE’s business is based in Europe, the group operates globally.

How many people do you employ?

Across all locations, SEFE employs 1,500 from 50 nationalities.

At our UK sales headquarters in Manchester, we employ 250 colleagues in a diverse array of roles and specialties from all across SEFE – from sales and operations, to technology, data science and more. While our primary activity in Manchester is sales, many colleagues from our central functions work from our Manchester office as well.
