Early start for Wintershalls Maria field: production begins one year ahead of schedule

December 18, 2017/ 10:10
Stavanger/Kassel. Wintershall, and its licence partners Petoro and Spirit Energy, have started production at the Maria field one year ahead of schedule. Costs have been reduced by more than 20% compared to plan.

Oil production has now begun, whereas originally start-up was intended for the fourth quarter of 2018. At an expected final investment cost of around 12 billion NOK, the project will stay more than 3 billion NOK below the original budget. Maria is the first own-operated field in Norway, which Wintershall takes all the way from exploration, through development and to production. Following a solid growth course on the Norwegian Continental Shelf, Wintershall Norge has increased its daily production from 3,000 boepd (barrel of oil equivalent per day) in 2009 to around 100,000 boepd today.
