Wintershall in Denmark
Wintershall Noordzee took a crucial step forward with the development of the ‘Ravn’ oil field. This field is currently in the final phase of the development cycle with production coming on stream this year. Via a subsea pipeline, the produced crude oil will be transported from an unmanned production platform to Wintershall Noordzee’s manned processing platform A6-A, located some 18 kilometers to the South-West. There the oil will be processed prior to transportation through the existing export pipeline system to the Dutch shore. Ravn will be the first field in Denmark which Wintershall Noordzee is bringing on stream as operator (share: 63.6%).
Wintershall Noordzee currently holds an additional three licenses in the Danish North Sea which were awarded in the 8th licensing round at the beginning of 2016. The company is operator for all three licenses and currently evaluating their work programs.
The Southern North Sea is one of Wintershall’s traditional core regions for producing natural gas and crude oil. Wintershall has already been active in the region since 1965.
