Wintershall has recently acquired a number of licences and fields in the Norwegian North Sea. The company currently invests half of its global exploration budget in the region, making it one of the Norway’s largest licence holders. Wintershall is implementing 8over8’s industry leading solution ProCon™, which drives recognised commercial discipline into major capital projects by ensuring standardisation and increasing internal and external collaboration.
Clare Colhoun, CEO at 8over8, says:
Wintershall is a key player in the North Sea and is expanding into new territories across the world. We look forward to supporting Wintershall’s capital investments and are delighted to welcome Germany’s largest oil and gas player into 8over8’s community of elite customers.
ProCon is proven to deliver discipline and predictable commercial outcomes to high value, high risk commercial engagements. The software will be fully integrated with Wintershall’s existing SAP system, and is set to go live in the third quarter of this year.
8over8’s ProCon is fast becoming the industry standard. It is currently used by 60 per cent of all oil super-majors, including six out of the world’s top ten most capital-intensive energy projects.
Wintershall Holding GmbH, based in Kassel, Germany, is a wholly-owned subsidiary of BASF in Ludwigshafen. The company has been active in the extraction of natural resources for 120 years, and in the exploration and production of crude oil and natural gas for over 80 years.

These are Europe, Russia, North Africa, South America, and increasingly the Middle East region. The company wants to expand its business further with exploration and production, selected partnerships, innovation and technological competence. Wintershall employs some 2,500 staff worldwide from 40 nations and is now Germany’s largest, internationally active crude oil and natural gas producer.
