About Us

The Danish Hydrocarbon Research and Technology Centre performs research to support a viable oil and gas production in the Danish North Sea for the years to come. Our research is aimed at increasing the cost efficient oil and gas production and improving the environmental footprint of the production operations in the Danish North Sea.

Background
Danish Hydrocarbon Research and Technology Centre (DHRTC) was founded in 2014 as part of Denmark's long-term national energy strategy. On behalf of the DUC partners, TOTAL, Noreco and Nordsøfonden, Maersk Oil (now TOTAL) entered into an agreement with DTU on establishing and running DHRTC from the Technical University of Denmark.

DHRTC is a partnership between five leading Danish research institutions: Aalborg University, Aarhus University, University of Copenhagen, Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS), and Technical University of Denmark.

Collaboration

The centre’s work involves close collaboration between research and engineering in the development of innovative solutions. This is done through research and partnerships across universities and in interaction with the industry. DHRTC is a global centre from which researchers can access important data and knowledge about the oil fields, and our work programmes are orchestrated from the centre in partnership with research groups from our partner institutions. One of the fundamental elements in DHRTC is to ensure solutions are developed across the various research fields, institutions, and national borders.

Our vision

DHRTC performs research to support a viable oil and gas production in the Danish North Sea for the years to come. Our research is aimed at increasing the cost efficient oil and gas production and improving the environmental footprint of the production operations in the Danish North Sea.

All DHRTCs projects have roadmaps, which describe how research findings will be matured into tangible deliverables that can make an impact on the North Sea oil and gas recovery, in terms of increased reserves, lower cost and improved environmental footprint.

 

This vision was updated in spring 2019 when the new scientific framework was approved.
