Digitisation, technology and solutions for the energy transition: Wintershall Dea presented visions and projects for the future of energy at ADIPEC 2021.
ADIPEC 2021 took place from 15 to 18 November in Abu Dhabi. This year’s edition was all about the future of gas and oil and the challenges and opportunities of the energy transition.
Wintershall Dea has a clear vision of how this future could look like and presented it at the trade fair. Visitors got an impression of how the company is progressing with innovations in the areas of sustainability, digitisation and technology. The stand presented Wintershall Dea’s Energy Transition Pathway, our approach to climate protection, new projects around CCS and hydrogen, as well as software and hardware solutions that enable operation at the highest level.

CTO Hugo Dijkgraaf on what technology at Wintershall Dea is about: performing better today and enabling a positive future.
Digitalisation and technology are at the heart of how Wintershall Dea operates. Kathrin Dufour, Senior Vice President Digitalization & Technology, reveals why.
Klaus Langemann, Senior Vice President Carbon Management and Hydrogen, on Wintershall Dea’s plans for hydrogen and CCS and the importance of innovation and technology for a net zero future.
At Wintershall Dea, we are determined to play a key role in the energy transition. Visitors to ADIPEC were able to get an idea of what the role can look like. We have set ambitious and measurable targets to further reduce our emissions. We target net zero activities by 2030, reducing our Scope 1 and 2 emissions from upstream activities at equity basis. And our ambition is to manage and reduce net carbon intensity including Scope 1, 2 and 3 greenhouse gas emissions. Here, CCS and hydrogen are key. We have the expertise and the assets to deliver.
Wintershall Dea has teamed up with IBM to develop the AI-based Exploration Advisory Tool. A tool that empowers explorationists to find data faster and easier than ever before. At ADIPEC, visitors, delegates, and fellow exhibitors had the chance to experience the cutting-edge technology and get to know the people at Wintershall Dea who make technology work.
ADIPEC 2021 were four exciting days of networking, exchange, and discussions. Here are some of our highlights.
Sameh Sabry, Managing Director Wintershall Dea Egypt, Nicolas Pringault, Facilities Engineering Manager Wintershall Dea Middle East, and Helge Beuthan, Managing Director Wintershall Dea Middle East exchange ideas. A visit to ADIPEC is also worthwhile for this.
The focus of the conference this year was on the role of the industry in a low-carbon future – and that is what Wintershall Dea’s new stand was all about. Visitors had the chance to learn more about our Energy Transition Pathway as well as our Digitalization & Technology strategy.
Technology is not just about software and hardware. It is also about the people behind it – and the visitors were able to get to know them at the Wintershall Dea stand. Photos and videos from #teamwintershalldea showed the people driving Digitalization and Technology forward.

ADIPEC is not only an industry meeting, it’s also a wonderful opportunity to make new contacts and meet old friends.
Since CTO Hugo Dijkgraaf was unable to travel in person, he sent a video message and gave the visitors a brief introduction to Wintershall Dea’s Digitalization & Technology projects.
