Wintershall Dea has set international standards in this ecologically sensitive area with its drilling and production platform – both in terms of environmental compatibility and high-tech drilling.
Wintershall Dea is the sole shareholder.
An artificial drilling and production island was constructed seven kilometres off Friedrichskoog to enable production, while strict environmental and safety standards were developed.
Mittelplate is one of the main pillars of crude oil production in Germany:
- More than 35 million tons of oil have been produced from the field
- it is estimated a further 15 to 20 million tons can be recovered.
