Wintershall runner up in top exploration prizeWintershall Norge has been named a runner up in the NPF Exploration Revived Award 2013, after two years of continued success on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.

Wintershall took the top prize in 2011, a year after discovering the Maria field, which has since become critical in Wintershall’s strategy of becoming a leading player on the NCS. The discovery was appraised in 2012, and is now in the concept selection phase of development.

Over the least two years, the company has built on its success making discoveries at Skarfjell, Rodriguez and Asha. The exploration prize is awarded every second year at the NPF Exploration Revived conference to companies which help stimulate exploration on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.


The 2013 prize went to Statoil with Wintershall and Total being named runners up.

"If you compare the number of wells we drill with the number of wells drilled by Statoil over the last two years, we are doing very well in terms of discoveries," said Wintershall North Sea Exploration Team Lead, Jens-Ole Koch. But he added that Wintershall remained one of the biggest exploration companies in the area despite being on its way to joining the exclusive club of field operators. "We are probably the company with the third largest number of wells drilled on the NCS over the last years," he said. "Exploration is in our DNA."
