Oil Production increase at Brage

First Wintershall-drilled production well on stream
Production has begun from the first Wintershall-drilled production well on Brage in Norway, and the platform’s first new well since 2011. The new well, drilled as a sidetrack from one of Brage’s 40 production slots, will add in the region of 2,000 extra barrels of oil per day to the platform’s production total.

“We are very grateful that the organization managed to put this well on stream because it had been a long time in planning,” says Alv Bjorn Solheim, Wintershall Norge Technical Director.

    Coffee and music offshore: Today our Wintershall-to-go cup is on top of a piano - on board of our Norwegian offshore production platform, Brage. But not only our offshore employees are making music. In Stavanger and Bergen our colleagues sing together in two choirs. And instead of coffee they have chamomile tea in their cups for a better voice. #wintershalltogo

    Did you know? In Germany 11% of the national demand for natural gas is produced in the country itself. Natural gas plays an important role in Germany's energy supply and is used primarily for heating and to generate electricity. But natural gas can do more – and even score points in terms of carbon footprint – find out more in our web special: bit.ly/1exrKqj
