Mittelplate Drilling and Production Island is located in the southern section of the Schleswig-Holstein Wadden Sea, which has enjoyed national park status since 1985. Mittelplate is in Protection Zone 2 of the National Park, where only certain activities are permitted. Oil production in the Mittelplate area is one of activities permitted on these offshore mud flats. Extremely high safety standards ensure that we do justice to the special conditions existing in this ecologically sensitive region.
