Wintershall Dea completely electrifies Germany's biggest oil field

The German oil and gas firm has switched from using gas to instead electrify Mittelplate using renewable onshore energy, reportedly creating significant CO2 reductions.

The Mittelplate field in the German Wadden Sea has been operational for 33 years, putting out just under 3 million liters of crude per day, which has made the field the most productive on the German shelf. | Photo: Joerg Sarbach/AP/Ritzau Scanpix
