Oil is a component that is used in most modern appliances. Your computer, your smartphone and your TV are all made out of plastic that uses oil as its basis.
But how do you find oil? Onshore oil resources are hidden 500 to 5000 meters below the earth’s surface. In this case Wintershall uses vibro vehicles that send out sound waves to identify oil deposits deep underground.
Learn more about how we find oil and how our vibro vehicles work here:
Did you know? The oil field with the greatest stamina is not in Saudi Arabia, and it’s not in Qatar either! It lies on the German-Dutch border. Wintershall has been producing crude oil at a constantly high level in Emlichheim for 70 years. This plateau production is unparalleled in the world and it is steam flooding that makes it possible.
We celebrated the 70th anniversary of oil production in Emlichheim - read more here:

Wintershall insight: Jan Gunnar is the platform boss on Brage and has worked in the oil industry for 34 years. He loves his job since day one and we took the opportunity to ask him a few questions.
Mr. Gunnar, what's the best thing about your job?
- That no one day is like the other and there are new challenges to dig your claws into everyday. I find that interesting. In addition, our roster gives us quite a lot of time off. Those are good aspects.
What does your work involve?
- I ensure that everything on the platform is organized in a safe and coordinated way. We aim to avoid unwelcome situations by doing that. At the same time I try to motivate employees to do what's expected of them – and a bit more.
- If you could choose another profession, what would it be?
I've worked in the oil industry for 34 years and have never thought about working in another. I can't imagine that other jobs are just as exciting. But if I had to choose, it would be in a management post. I like being the boss.
If you are looking for a challenging job with lots of opportunities, Wintershall is the place to be. Check out our open job positions here: https://www.wintershall.com/en/career.html #career
