A drill bit can cost up to 100,000€. What makes it so expensive? To reach oil and gas deposits in depths between 500 and 5000 meters you need to rely on drill bits made out of diamond sometimes. But that’s not the only tool Wintershall uses for drilling - more about our drilling toolbox here:

Did u know? The natural product oil consists of more than 17,000 components! It can be classified as extra heavy oil and bitumen, heavy oil, light oil, and condensate. API* (*American Petroleum Institute) gravity is the unit generally used to classify crude oil. The lower the API gravity, the heavier the oil, which also means that the refining process is more difficult. One example? Light oil has to be recovered first from heavy oil. Only then can end products such as diesel and petroleum be produced. bit.ly/1oU1upu #crudeoil

New Agreement with Statoil: Wintershall aquires shares in oil and gas fields from Statoil for US$1.25 billion – including shares in the two producing fields Gjøa and Vega and the Aasta Hansteen development. The daily production in Norway will increase thereby up to 60.000 barrels of oil equivalent. In addition, the companies agreed that Wintershall will become operator of the producing field Vega. #norway #upstream bit.ly/1uyAlx8 (In the picture from left to right: Martin Bachmann (Wintershall), Arne Sigve Nylund (Statoil), Bernd Schrimpf, Wintershall Norge))
How do you control offshore platforms that are far away? You can either man them or operate them remotely. Here you see two colleagues in our Remote Control Operations Center in Den Helder, who monitor and manage several of our platforms in the North Sea via IT-systems.

And how do you get to work? Bike, car, bus? Some Wintershall employees use completely different means of transport to get to work – like our Norwegian colleague Magnar.
Magnar, how do you get to work?
