An Aberdeen-based organisation has had a hand in a project aimed at modifying AeroZero, an aerogel product used to insulate subsea pipelines. With the support of the Oil and Gas Innovation Centre (OGIC), the initial product designer, Blueshift, worked with a team from Strathclyde University on advancing the thin, sheet version of AeroZero. US-based Blueshift was delighted with the outcome and is continuing to work with the university on the next phase of development.
Oil and gas firms are set to benefit from access to advanced capabilities that can cut costs and enhance materials used in the energy industry following a new agreement between teams of technology experts.
Opportunities for the oil and gas industry to learn from innovation in the biotech sector will be explored at an event in Aberdeen on Thursday. The Oil & Gas Innovation Centre (OGIC) and the Industrial Biotechnology Innovation Centre (IBioIC) are collaborating to host Biotechnology in Oil & Gas: the Art of the Possible – a workshop which will explore the opportunities to apply technology and know-how from biotechnology to challenges facing the oil and gas industry. Taking place at the Rox Hotel on Thursday 25 June, the event will examine the impact biotechnology could have in a range of disciplines in
