What do geologists do exactly? And how do they help us find oil & gas? The natural resources we are looking for are hidden deep below the ground. Geologists are experts for the subsurface. They estimate where crude oil and natural gas might be or how much a reservoir might contain. They also define suitable locations for exploration and production wells. You could call them “hunters” in search of natural resources. Learn more about the search for oil & gas and geological studies here: bit.ly/10vBw5x

Decorating birch branches with colorful feathers follows an old custom in Norway to mark the transition from winter to spring. The tradition has become a part of Fastelaven, which our Norwegian colleagues celebrated this Sunday - this also involves eating sweet buns with whipped cream and jam. Yummy! So we wish you all a nice week - while we here in Europe wait for spring to start! #Monday

Oil and gas production without highly specialized technologies is not possible anymore. That’s why we put a strong focus on research and innovation. Would you have thought that a fungus could help produce more oil? No? That is one of our research projects though.

Did you ever ask yourself how offshore platforms are built? Take a look at this new video which shows how the living quarters for Aasta-Hansteen are lifted with enormous cranes onto the platform. It almost looks like a whole building is being lifted up! bit.ly/1nKdXme Wintershall is a shareholder in Aasta-Hansteen as well – read more about the project here: bit.ly/1NqWjsg

What do bats and geophysicists looking for oil have in common? Both use sound waves to learn more about their surroundings! Bats use soundwaves for orientation in the darkness. Our geophysicists have vibro trucks that create sonic waves. These get reflected by rock formations and help examine the subsurface. Want to know more about vibro trucks?
