Cinematic journey of discovery: A visit to the Brage platform

To celebrate the first anniversary, a film crew visited the platform in the Norwegian North Sea to get an exclusive look behind the scenes. Let the film take you on an exciting journey of discovery and get to know a team that jointly pursues a specific goal: unlocking the full potential of the Brage field.

    Drill bits can be made out of steel, diamond or even chocolate. Ok, we won’t be able to drill to depths of 5000 meters with this drill bit made out of chocolate. But in return it tastes delicious. In this spirit: Have a sweet start into the week! #monday

    Our Wintershall-to-go cup goes round the world. Here it visits the heliport in Bergen/Norway and stands at the returning point for survival suits. In case of emergency - e.g. somebody falling into the sea - the bright colours of the suit help the wearer to be spotted. The suit will also keep the person above water and protect it from the coldness of the sea. #wintershalltogo
