There is no gas for consumers without infrastructure. With the installation of the first pipes for the Polarled Pipeline, the development of the Aasta Hansteen region in the Norwegian Sea is making considerable progress. Polarled is set to transport gas from the Aasta Hansteen field to the Western coast of Norway. The installation of the 480-kilometre-long pipeline is scheduled to be completed by the end of August. Wintershall has shareholdings in both Polarled (13.2%) and Aasta Hansteen (24%). Find out more here: bit.ly/1CHDtMN
The sun rises, a new week begins! Also here in the Siberian tundra near the Achimov formation, where Wintershall produces condensate and natural gas. In that sense: We wish you a sunny start into the week as well! #monday
To move house is never easy. Especially when you are a drilling rig. Weighing 11.000 tons and with a height of 75m the ENSCO 121 drilling rig needs two ships to tow it. The rig searches for oil and gas in the southern North Sea for Wintershall - here you see how it was transported from Rotterdam to Denmark last year.

Wintershall made a profit of more than one billion euros in 2014, for the fourth year in a row. The net income after taxes and minority interests was 1.464 billion euros (2013: 1.730). “Despite the low oil price, in 2014 we achieved the second-best result in the company’s history,” says the Wintershall Chairman of the Executive Board, Rainer Seele.
The good result was delivered by a diversified portfolio, low costs for production and reserves replenishment and attractive technology and exploration projects. “This enables us to make significant contributions to the results of the BASF Group even when the oil price is low,” explains Seele. www.wintershall.com/facts2014
