Collaboration is the path to the goal of increased oil and gas recovery from the North Sea. The Danish Hydrocarbon Research and Technology Centre therefore works closely with the oil and gas industry. Joint development and research projects aim to ensure valuable solutions are found.

The vision of Danish Hydrocarbon Research and Technology Centre is to perform 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. The path of the goal is also to create good collaboration with all industry players, from service companies to operators. 


DHRTC works closely with the industry. This means that the centre has the unique opportunity to offer researchers access to data from industry. In addition to data, the collaboration provides opportunities for consultation with industry experts.

External collaboration partners can work with the centre's researchers and specialized project development and technology maturation teams throughout the entire process from idea to proven results.

Work programmes and TRL scale

To ensure the very best industry solutions, research projects are linked to a number of work programmes each focusing on a specific issue. The projects linked to the various work programmes all contribute to addressing the specific issue. The work programmes show the technical solutions and economic benefits of the research results. Explore the work programmes here.

Work on the programmes takes place in parallel with the research projects. As the research develops, the work programmes ascend a Technology Readiness Level scale. Potential new technologies are developed at the same pace.
