RIJSWIJK, the NetherlandsWintershall Noordzee has started production from the Ravn oil field in block 5/06 in the Danish North Sea.

This is the company’s first operated development project in the Danish sector.

Oil produced from a subsurface depth of around 4,000 m (13,123 ft) flows to a new production platform located 300 km (186 mi) north of Den Helder.

Production is then transported via an 18-km (11.2-mi) subsea pipeline to Wintershall’s A6-A processing platform in the German sector, for onward delivery through the existing export network south to the Netherlands.

Wintershall has applied an “Appraisal through Development” concept, which entails continuously compiling data on well productivity and the reservoir’s lateral extent of the reservoir. It aims to use this data for future field development options in the region.

Wintershall operates Ravn with a 63.64% interest, in partnership with the Danish state-owned oil and gas company Nordsøfonden (36.36%).
