Wintershall Dea is one of the leading gas and oil producers on the Norwegian Continental Shelf. With Brage, Vega and Maria, we are the operator of three producing fields. Combined with our share of partner fields, we are producing around 150,000 barrels of oil equivalent (boe) per day.

With Nova and Dvalin in the development pipeline, Wintershall Dea is set to operate even more of its own production in Norway. And by 2022, we are forecasted to be amongst the three largest non-state producers in Norway.

Vega: Pioneering Subsea Field

In 2015, Vega became Wintershall Dea’s first Norwegian subsea field in production. The field is developed with three underwater templates tied back to a single host.
 
Edvard Grieg
Regional Hub for Current and Future Discoveries

The Edvard Grieg field is located in the Utsira High area of the North Sea, around 180 kilometres west of Stavanger. The field, discovered in 2007, came on-stream in November 2015. The oil field has a stand-alone platform, including processing and living quarters on a steel jacket construction. The platform has been designed as a regional hub to receive and process hydrocarbons from current and future developments and discoveries in the area.

Gjøa: A Reliable Host

Located in the Q35 Area of the North Sea, Gjøa is in a core region for Wintershall Dea. The operated Vega and Nova fields are both Gjøa satellites.
 
Ivar Aasen
Resource Extraction from Five North Sea Licenses

The Ivar Aasen field is situated west of the Johan Sverdrup field in the North Sea and was discovered in 2008. The field came on-stream in December 2016. Ivar Aasen is comprised of resources from five North Sea licenses, PL 001B, 028B, 242, 338 and 547. Production volumes from the unitised field, including Wintershall Dea’s Asha discovery, are extracted via a manned production platform. A pipeline connects the field with nearby Edvard Grieg for processing and export. Edvard Grieg also provides lift gas and power.

The Knarr field, situated 120 kilometres off the coast of Florø, in the northern part of the North Sea, is exploited using two subsea templates at 400 metres water depth, tied in to a floating production, storage and offloading vessel (FPSO). The vessel has a production capacity of 63,000 barrels of oil per day, with storage of 800,000 barrels. Its turret allows the vessel to freely rotate 360 degrees and ensures it’s always facing the rough weather that is often present in the North Sea.

Skarv
Major production from the Norwegian Sea

The Skarv field was discovered in 1998 and is located just south of the polar circle, 210 kilometres off the coast of Sandnessjøen. Four discoveries were made in the units Skarv and Gråsel (1998), Idun (1999) and Ærfugl (2000).

Snorre
Key to the Tampen area

Snorre is an oil field in the Tampen region of the northern North Sea. Wintershall Dea has an 8.57% stake in the field. The Snorre field consists of several large fault blocks. The reservoir consists of sandstone from the Statfjord and Lunde formations in the Early Jurassic stratum and the Triassic strata. The reservoir is at a depth of between 2,000 and 2,700 metres.

Snøhvit
Offshore Pioneer in The Barents Sea

Snøhvit is a natural gas field in the Barents Sea and is located 140 kilometres to the northwest of the town of Hammerfest. It is the first offshore development project in the Barents Sea and has no surface installations on the field itself.

The subsea gas wells are connected via pipelines to the LNG plant on the island of Melkøya, just off Hammerfest. The depth of the water there is between 310 and 340 metres. In addition to Snøhvit, the field also includes several discoveries and reservoirs in the Askeladd and Albatross structures.

Statfjord Øst
Two Production Templates, One Subsea Water Injection Template

Statfjord Øst is an offshore oil field located around seven kilometres to the northeast of the Statfjord field in the Tampen region of the North Sea. The water depth is between 150 and 190 metres. The field has been developed with two production templates and one water injection template on the seabed, connected via pipelines to the Statfjord C platform. In addition, one production well has been drilled from Statfjord C.

Veslefrikk
Dual Facility Field

The Veslefrikk field lies 30 kilometres north of Oseberg, in the northern part of the North Sea (block 30/3 and 30/6), at a water depth of 185 metres. The dual facility field, serviced from a fixed steel wellhead facility and a semi-submersible facility, has been producing since 1989. An oil pipeline is connected to the Oseberg Transport System (OTS) for transport to the Sture terminal. Veslefrikk is in tail production phase.

Vigdis/Tordis
One License, Two Subsea Production Fields 

This license covers the two producing subsea fields Tordis and Vigdis and the Vigdis North East development project. The license is situated 210 kilometres to the northwest of Bergen, in the Tampen area of the North Sea. We have a 2.8% share in the license. Equinor is the operator, the other partners being Petoro, Exxon Mobil and Idemitsu.
