30 years’ safe and environmentally compatible crude oil production from Mittelplate, Germany’s largest oil field: to celebrate this event, the Land Station of DEA Deutsche Erdoel AG in Friedrichskoog plans to open its doors to the public on Saturday, 26 August 2017. From 10:00h to 18:00h, visitors can embark on a voyage of discovery into the world of domestic crude oil and can look forward to a rich programme of information and entertainment.

“We want to celebrate the 30-year anniversary of oil production from Mittelplate in style, together with citizens in the region, holidaymakers, people on excursions as well as with employees and their families,” explains Wolfgang Faist, Head of the Holstein Production District. “Everyone is cordially invited to attend this celebration,” says Faist.

The entertainment programme ranges from jump castles and soccer goal targets, a bungee trampoline, all the way through to a 360-degree walkaround on Mittelplate Island. The programme will be rounded off by an exhibition as well as expert guided tours to explain the technical processes of extraction and processing of domestic oil to visitors in a readily understandable fashion. One of the focal points will be a presentation of safety and rescue equipment. In addition, visitors can look forward to being served ice cream, coffee and cake as well as hot snacks.
