Environmental protection is important to us! We use water, electricity, and produce waste in natural gas and oil production. In all our activities, we, of course, are using our resources sensibly. You will find charts and figures for 2013 here: bit.ly/14orWxL #safety #hse
One thing is certain: Safety plays an important role at Wintershall. But how good was our performance regarding the use of valuable natural resources? And what technologies were used in Enhanced Oil Recovery efforts? You can read important figures about Health, Safety, and Environmental Protection in the Annual HSE Report which is now available on our website: bit.ly/104gNnO #safety #HSE
We hope your hunt for Easter Eggs was successful and that you enjoyed the holidays! Summer is now officially around the corner and spring has definitely sprung in the Karlsaue orangery as evidenced by this marvelous picture. Have a great start into the week!
Did you know? Large industrial use of natural gas began in Fredonia in the United States in 1825. This is where W.H. Hart drilled a well to recover natural gas to light a mill and a residential building. Hart also used natural gas to operate a lighthouse on Lake Erie. In 1858, he founded the world’s first natural gas company, the Fredonia Gas Light Company. From 1883 onwards, natural gas was also used in Pittsburgh and Pennsylvania in the glass and steel industries. The only difficulties were in establishing a pipeline system.

Good morning! With this picture of our offshore platform Brage in Norway we start with you into the coming week. In all kind of weather and tough conditions, it must be surely a challenge for our colleagues to work out there. Our Online Team wishes you all a great start into the week, wherever you are! #brage #wintershall www.wintershall.no
What do geologists need to find oil and gas? A good nose. And technology aplenty. Check out how Wintershall analyses rock formations: bit.ly/10vBw5x #geologists #analyse
Keen to know, what Wintershall actually focuses on in the exploration and production of oil and gas and in which core regions we are active? If so, check out our brand new "Wintershall at a Glance" which is available in six languages and get a free download: bit.ly/xwL9pS
Do you already know what natural gas is made up of? Why is the climate-friendly fossil energy source so important for our future? What is natural gas used for besides to produce electricity and heat? Take a look at the second part of our natural resources series! Why natural gas keeps the world turning: bit.ly/QWpHlb #natural_gas
The early bird catches the worm, just like the quick seagull catches the fish – as can be seen here off the Dutch coast. While the seagulls are looking for food, Wintershall has successfully been exploring and producing oil and gas in the Netherlands since 1965. And on that note, have a nice week! #monday
A tight schedule: 80 junior geoscientists spend two weeks studying our crude oil reservoir at Emlichheim. Initiated by the "European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers" and supported by Wintershall, the "Young Professionals" collect data by means of various geophysical measuring methods and learn to interpret the results. For some of them it's their first assignment in the field.
