About the Organization

In 2014, the partners in Danish Underground Consortium (DUC) entered into an agreement to finance the Danish Hydrocarbon Research and Technology Centre, with the purpose of increasing oil and gas recovery in the Danish region of the North Sea.

The Danish Hydrocarbon Research and Technology Centre (DHRTC) is the joint initiative of five leading Danish research institutions, and is based at the Technical University of Denmark.

DHRTC was founded in 2014 as part of Denmark's long-term national energy strategy. The partners in Danish Underground Consortium (DUC) have entered into an agreement on the financing of the centre, which is a partnership between five leading Danish research institutions: Aalborg University, Aarhus University, the University of Copenhagen, the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS), and Technical University of Denmark.

The overarching purpose is to identify new technological and conceptual solutions that boost oil and gas recovery in the Danish region of the North Sea. The goal of the research centre is also to provide the framework for international research and lay the foundations for relevant, research-based study programmes with the potential to support interdisciplinary and interdepartmental research programmes.
