DHRTC works to find new solutions to the challenges in the North Sea

Tuesday 04 Jul 17

The Danish Government has just launched its new strategy for the North Sea, which focuses on the potentials still left to be realised for the benefit of Denmark. Danish Hydrocarbon Research and Technology Center look forward to find the best technological solutions for an improved oil and gas recovery.

There are still large volumes of oil and gas in the Danish part of the North Sea. More than 25 percent is produced by existing technological solutions. To increase recovery factor significantly, it is crucial to find new and improved technological solutions. This is also one of the Danish Government’s main points when they launched the strategy for the North Sea today.

“We completely agree with the strategy and the assignment given to this centre. We are to support and target the development of new technologies. Already now, there are many activities set in motion in the centre, which are in line with this new strategy. We look forward to further collaboration on development and implementation of new solutions,” says Bo Cerup-Simonsen, director in Danish Hydrocarbon Research and Technology Centre (DHRTC).

The research activities focus on a multitude of ideas from increased recovery of oil from the subsurface to improved operations and constructions in the North Sea.

“We collaborate across industry and academia to create new knowledge and new technologies. The overall goal for all our activities is to positively contribute to the realization of the potentials still to be found in the North Sea,” tells Bo Cerup-Simonsen.

About Danish Hydrocarbon Research and Technology Centre
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.
