Wintershall Dea has been operating successfully off the coast of Denmark for around 40 years. The southern North Sea still plays a major role in Europe’s energy supply, as repeatedly demonstrated by new projects. For example, the company commenced production as shareholder of Wintershall Noordzee (50% Wintershall Dea, 50% Gazprom) from Ravn, its first self-operated crude field, in 2017. It has a stake in two other oil fields. The company also holds five exploration concessions and is the operator in all of them.

Where we operate in Denmark

Wintershall Dea’s concessions are located off the western coast of Denmark: At the border with the Norwegian North Sea, oil is produced from the Nini and Cecilie fields and exploration is conducted in concessions 8/16 and 9/16. The self-operated crude field Ravn adjoins the German section of the North Sea and is connected to the transport network there. The other concessions – Greater Ravn, Elly/Luke and Torsk – are located in the direct vicinity. They are still being explored at present.

18
kilometres is the distance the oil is transported – by underwater pipeline – from the Ravn rig to the processing platform in the German North Sea.
530
square kilometres is the area covered by the 8/16 and 9/16 exploration concessions.
