The waves break at the shore, the horizon invites us to dream of faraway countries. Our Wintershall-to-go cup also savours this moment. In Tananger, Norway, it watches the ships set their sails for new shores. A wonderful view – we’d like to go on a trip ourselves! In that sense: Allow yourself a little daydreaming and have a relaxed start into the week! #monday

A fascination for geology and a strong technical focus – that’s what characterizes Andries Wever. His work as a geophysicist at Wintershall Noordzee covers the entire spectrum of activities to get potential oil and gas field identified and finally drilled. And the great thing about it: At Wintershall he is not merely a cog in a large system but can make a real impact. Here you can get more information about him and his work at Wintershall: #peopleatwintershall

A distinguished art exhibition and a Wintershall colleague from Argentina. A work from Adrián Muiño, employee from Wintershall Energía, was selected out of 650 works for the “Salón Nacional de Artes Visuales” in Buenos Aires. His photography is one part of his series of photos about disappearing small towns in the Province of Buenos Aires. He describes his photo as an enigma – posing questions and awakening interest of the viewer. We congratulate on being selected for the exhibition! #argentina

What a sight! A giant heavy vessel lifts the topside of the Edvard Grieg installation onto the platform’s already installed steel jacket in the North Sea. The topside consists of a main deck module, a combined utility module and living quarters, a process module and a flare tower. The main deck with 10.000 tons was the first to be lifted into place. With this operation, Lundin Norway, operator of the Edvard Grieg field, expects production in the fourth quarter of 2015. Wintershall is a partner on the Lundin-operated field.

We say: “Well done!” and “Congratulations, Achimgaz!”
