International oil producers learn from students

Thursday 16 May 19

The International Association of Oil & Gas Producers paid a visit to DHRTC to learn how the centre works to recover oil in a safe and sustainable way while also discovering that innovation is high on the agenda on the entire university.

Smiles and laughter marked the situation when more than 50 members of the International Association of Oil and Gas Producers (IOGP) left Danish Hydrocarbon Research and Technology Centre. They had just been inspired to go back and study again after visiting the DTU Skylab, where students show what innovation can be like today when you study.

Research within oil and gas also has to be innovative to make sure that recovery is as sustainable and safe as possible. The IOGP members came from all over the world to DHRTC to learn more about the research carried out within e.g. digitalisation, maintenance, asset integrity management as well as carbon capture storage (CCS) and even how to do radical innovation across research areas.

One of the visitors, Gordon Ballard, IOGP’s Executive Director, commented that: “The visit to DHRTC was a highlight of IOGP’s time in Copenhagen. There are considerable oil & gas resources left in the North Sea. Developing the technologies to unlock them in a safe, sustainable and economic manner is key, and it was inspiring to see the new generation take on this challenge with such passion.”
