Technology & Innovation Where High Tech meets Hard Work

From exploration and production to increasing the yield, an oil or gas company cannot perform its daily activities without technology. Seismic surveys, wells and 3D simulations are just a few examples.

Wintershall boasts a wide range of applied technologies and has declared its goal of finding the right solution to every challenge. What’s more, it must do so in difficult conditions – such as 50 degrees Celsius in the desert or in the Siberian permafrost. As well as employing tried and tested methods, we are increasingly working on unusual and innovative solutions, such as the use of fungi to enhance oil recovery. For research projects like this, we make the most of our cooperation with out parent company, BASF.
