Wintershall in Chile Activities in South America

In 2008, Wintershall extended its South American activities from Argentina into neighboring Chile and is involved in exploration there: for example exploring the promising reservoirs in the Magellan Basin the Otway and Tranquilo blocks. In an area measuring around 12.000 square kilometers, and very close to our existing production site in Tierra del Fuego, our experts use 2D- and 3D seismic measurements as well as exploration wells to search for natural gas. After uneconomic results of explorations in the Otway- and Tranquilo blocks Wintershall is now only in San Sebastian Block active where we are drilling several explorations.
