About us

Your Innovation Partner

The Oil & Gas Technology Centre is your innovation partner – working with you to make it happen!

Our goal is to unlock the full potential of the UK North Sea, anchor the supply chain in North East Scotland and inspire a culture of innovation and transformation.

Established in October 2016 with £180 million from the Aberdeen City Region Deal, the OGTC aims to be the go-to technology centre for the oil and gas industry - both in the UK and internationally. 

Our Technology Vision 

We provide an industry-led, focused and flexible approach to deliver, accelerate, stimulate and inspire innovation.  This includes a specific focus on technology that will fix today, unlock potential and transform tomorrow for the net zero future.

So far we have co-invested nearly £130 million in over 200 industry-led projects, developing and deploying new technologies - while creating a broader culture of innovation.  To date we have now welcomed over 20,000 people through our doors!
