Brage is Wintershall Dea’s first manned platform in Norway. Located in the northern North Sea, 125 kilometres west of Bergen, it is one of the oldest producing platforms in Norway. First discovered in 1980, the field came into production in 1993 and has been in operation for more than 25 years. Brage is a fully integrated platform with living quarters, auxiliary equipment module, process modules, drilling modules, well and manifold areas. The cabin capacity is 130 people.

Integrated facilities

Brage has been developed as a fixed integrated production, drilling and accommodation facility with a steel jacket. The main drainage strategy is water injection, with gas lift utilised in most wells. Brage oil is exported via the Oseberg Transport System (OTS) to the Sture terminal. The gas is exported via a pipeline to Kårstø. The field lies at a depth of 137 metres.

Sustainable production

Wintershall Dea plans to continue operating Brage for many years to come and is engaged in a process of drilling new wells that is prolonging the lifetime of the field.

We are proud to operate Brage and plan to continue producing from this field for many years to come.

One Team for Safety and Efficiency

For all its activities in Norway, Wintershall Dea adopts the "One Team" approach: project management with close involvement of stakeholders, partners and suppliers. This enables efficiency and HSE performance to be continuously improved across all activities – an approach which was developed at Brage and is practiced by the up to 130 employees on the platform.
