Global oil and gas executives are preparing to accelerate investments in digital technologies, with the main goal of furthering their cost-saving ambitions.
The downturn in the oil and gas industry has been well documented but the upside – and there is one - has been the incredible amount of work that is taking place in Aberdeen in supporting and nurturing a new generation of tech start ups who have the potential to ensure the UK has a sustainable hydrocarbon industry for years to come.
I’m not a big fan of looking backwards. And being an optimist by nature I believe there is a lot to look forward to for Aberdeen and the wider energy sector in 2019.
One of the biggest oil bosses in the world has a message for hotshot young tech stars: trust me, being arrogant won’t pay off.
Oil firms BP and Aker BP have entered into a pact to explore ways of developing pioneering new technologies together.
A new support programme has been launched targeted at North Sea technology start-ups to maximise their potential.
An oilfield technology expert has urged the industry to find a “higher productive gear” at an inaugural event in Aberdeen.
Utah holds the largest reserves of oil sands in the United States, but up until now, no company had the technology to exploit these vast resources.
At the time of writing I’m hearing mutterings about the need for the oil and gas industry to be given a so-called sector deal.
The amount of money being spent by North Sea operators on research for new technologies has dropped by 36% since the oil price crash.
Advances in technology could cut lifecycle costs of producing oil and gas by nearly a third by 2050, according to BP.
The role of digital technologies in improving production efficiency offshore will be explored at an event organised by the Industry Technology Facilitator (ITF) later this month.
The Oil and Gas Technology Centre (OGTC) is calling for technologies to transform how we develop the remaining UKCS hydrocarbons. That prompted me to think about transformational technologies I’ve seen in my 40-plus years as a chemical engineer. Could we learn from past innovations?
Supermajor Shell recently held an event to explore ways in which new technologies can be applied to the challenge of energy transition.
A former NASA astronaut claims collaboration between the aerospace and energy industries is key to the future development of both workforces.
Recent M&A activity as well as ongoing discussions within the UK North Sea Oil and Gas industry is shaking many traditionalists. The renewed interest from smaller operators in growing their presence in the region and the arrival of private equity businesses as the new owners of exploration and production companies will mean leaner operations, with shrinking workforces an inevitability.
The new Oil and Gas Technology Centre (OGTC) in Aberdeen aims to bridge the gap between a bright idea and a useful piece of equipment.
A new £180million centre aimed at developing shelved, under-developed and early-stage oil and gas technology opens in Aberdeen today.
Five Universities in the UK will launch a three-year project later this year which will use drone technology for the inspection of offshore wind turbines.
