Like in this picture, where our colleagues enter the helicopter on the F16-A platform in the southern North Sea. In this sense: Get ready for take off - have a great start into the new week! #Monday

    An accolade for excellence: Wintershall was presented with an award for the best international communication campaign by a German company in Berlin yesterday evening. Corporate Communications received the PR Report Award for its successful change communication in Norway and the "We are here to stay" campaign. The jury for this prestigious PR prize was impressed by the internal and external communication by the internationally active oil and gas producer surrounding the recent transactions with Statoil. Wintershall has increased daily production in Norway from 3,000 to a current level of 60,000 barrels of oil equivalent. The workforce has risen from 200 to 500. That represents a huge challenge for the company – and also for communication.
