Meet our employees
I joined Wintershall at the beginning of 2012 helping to introduce our new accounting system. I work with both the numbers and the system, so it is a challenging role where I get to solve a lot of different problems. I love to travel and experience new cultures, so it is a pleasure to work in such a diverse environment.
I like to combine two of my passions by running to work in the morning. I have run several marathons, but work can be just as challenging. I work in cost estimating and planning, and with the concept for the Maria field under discussion, the next few years promises to be just as rewarding. Some of the figures are huge but I am focused on making sure we get the process right.
I work in the Development department at Wintershall Norge and have the main responsibility for the field development in our partner-operated fields Aasta Hansteen, Polarled and Asterix. These are very exciting times for us, with a lot happening on the Norwegian Continental Shelf. Outside of work I am passionate about helping young people to become interested in maths and science.
I am a geologist working in the exploration department. We have had a lot of success in exploration over the last few years, but the company is always good at making sure that everyone gets the same updates and the same information whatever department we are in. It means that everyone shares in the success and everyone can fell proud.
I'm building a house at the moment. We have been working hard on it for 18 months but it is nearly finished. It's a lot like working at Wintershall. I'm a petrophysicist, working in the exploration department. Sometimes it feels like working in a very long tunnel, then suddenly you see the light, and you can be the first person to see a discovery worth billions of dollars and multiple jobs. It's very exciting.
I am a very keen sailor. My family and I recently sailed down from Stavanger all the way to the south of Denmark. As a project engineer on the Maria find, I compare my sailing with my work: You are responsible for the boat and the crew, things can happen that you don't expect and you always have to solve technical problems. It is very rewarding.
I love climbing. You need to trust people and be highly focused and concentrated. It is like my work. I am a geologist and I work in the production and development part of the business, where we need to focus to make the right assessments. There are also great opportunities here to move around. So I'm really enjoying getting involved in the exploration side of the business as well.
I work in the Wintershall HSEQ department. It is a special place because when you have done something well, you get recognised for it, and you get good feedback. That inspires you to do even better. I also use my skills in my private life. I like to go on holidays on my motorcycle. And I use HSEQ methodologies to make sure that I am safe.
I jumped at the chance to join Wintershall to become team lead for well interventions and completions. This company is really taking off in Norway and I see soaring opportunities for the future. Making decisions and creating new opportunities really gets the adrenaline going and I am never afraid to take a leap.
