Technology Zone

What do robots, composite materials, additive manufacturing and augmented reality have in common?

They are all sorely underutilised in offshore oil and gas, despite being part of a general industrial transformation in other industries.

The Oil & Gas Technology Centre’s Technology Space at this year’s Offshore Europe presents these and other technologies to the industry to make you think differently. We’re looking for technology beyond the “usual suspects” to stimulate discussion about their transformative potential. Then we want to get down to creating real strategies for adopting, adapting and deploying these technologies to help recover the estimated 20 billion barrels of oil equivalent in the North Sea (according to The Wood Review 2014).

In addition, the Technology Zone will also host a village of start-ups and SMEs, encouraging operators and big companies in the supply chain to look at the solutions they have or are developing.

A series of short presentations and a Q&A by the Centre’s leadership team and board members about the strategy, plans, and operating model of the centre completes the programme.
