Technology projects

Just eight months since it opened, The Oil & Gas Technology Centre has approved investment of more than £15 million for 22 projects, in partnership with industry, to accelerate the development of technologies designed to transform the oil and gas industry in the North Sea. Our five key themes are: Asset Integrity, Decommissioning, Digital Transformation, Small Pools and Well Construction.

Each of our five themes has its own Solution Centre driving innovation. Each Solution Centre pulls together teams of experts to work with you. Our Solution Centres look for innovative ideas to help commercialise and we work with industry to identify the right projects to take forward.

Call for Ideas

The ‘Call for Ideas’ process is a key part of our Open Innovation Programme. It’s our primary means of reaching out to the technology community to identify, support and fund innovative solutions. We issue a diverse range of calls throughout the year to tackle challenges identified by the wider oil and gas industry. Each call has a fund of c.£1million to invest in a portfolio of projects.
