Wintershall is stepping up its activities in the southern North Sea. In addition to an extensive drilling campaign in the Netherlands, the UK and Denmark, the company intends to take its natural gas and crude oil discoveries into the production phase swiftly.
“We believe in the ongoing potential of the southern North Sea and are hereby making our contribution to securing Europe’s energy supply by efficiently developing the assets we have close to home,” explains Robert Frimpong, Managing Director of Wintershall Noordzee, during the Flame international energy conference in Amsterdam (13 - 16 April).
More than half of the natural gas consumed in the European Union, and about a quarter of the EU’s crude oil consumption, comes from the North Sea and the countries bordering it.
