New research led by the University of Aberdeen highlights the “huge potential” of carbon storage sites across a North Sea CCS ‘super basin’.
The year 2022 will go down as one of the most turbulent in the history of the UK Continental Shelf (UKCS).
The Energy Institute (EI) has announced the results of its annual thesis competition, commending Aberdeen’s best MSc students for work on solar monitoring, subsea engineering and wells.
The National Decommissioning Centre (NDC) has launched £2 million project to construct a new, “world-leading” test facility for the plugging and abandonment (P&A) of oil and gas wells.
Frisco e-Bikes and Solar Docks has joined forces with the University of Aberdeen to help develop its solar-powered e-bike and docking concept, ahead of a planned rollout of up to 15,000 e-bikes by 2027.
The recent spectacular increase in the UK wholesale natural gas price from less than 50 pence per therm in April 2021 to a peak of nearly 300 pence in October came as a complete surprise to everyone, including market traders engaged daily in buying and selling the commodity.
The Energy Institute (EI) recently hosted its annual competition, recognising Aberdeen’s best MSc students for studies exploring elements of carbon capture, solar and subsea engineering.
Flexibility will be essential for workers in the energy transition, with employment likely to switch between oil and gas and the new technologies.
From New South Wales to north-east Scotland, Tavis Potts has come a long way to spearhead the University of Aberdeen’s new Centre for Energy Transition (CET).
The energy sector faces two existential shifts in the coming years, with the digitalisation of existing energy systems and the transition to a future energy mix.
A team of petroleum engineering students from the University of Aberdeen has made it to the world finals of the annual PetroBowl competition organised by the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE).
Aberdeen University will test whether technology commonly applied in the field of medicine can help oil firms tackle a “notorious, multi-million-pound problem”.
The historic Brooklands motor racing circuit in Surrey is this week alive with the sound of - well not very much really, as hundreds of eco-friendly vehicles glide around it in virtual silence.
A “significant” percentage of women are opting out of the offshore energy sector in Aberdeen, despite an industry push to boost numbers.
The uptake of licences west of Shetland by major operators shows the basin has “huge potential”, a top Aberdeen academic said.
Aberdeen University has announced the award of renewable energy research funding totalling just under £150,000.
A group that helps aspiring engineers get into the oil and gas industry is staging two events at universities in Aberdeen later this month.
Real talent has no ceiling, no age limit.
Researchers at the University of Aberdeen have found that the use of drones to monitor oil and gas pipelines could bring significant benefits.
Sub-zero temperatures in the North Atlantic could significantly impact the natural ability of bacteria to help the ocean recover from a major oil spill, according to researchers.
The purpose of the new research paper by Linda Stephen and myself is to throw light on the implications of “lower for longer oil prices” on long term activity in the UKCS to 2050. The oil price scenarios employed are $50 and $60 in real terms. For the year 2050 these translate into $96.1 and $115.3 in money-of-the day terms. The price scenarios are not forecasts.
North Sea reservoirs holding billions of barrels of oil and gas could be exploited - but only if prices go up and costs come down, a leading petro-economist has said.
The UK’s first masters degree in decommissioning oil rigs and platforms has been launched by the University of Aberdeen in partnership with Robert Gordon University (RGU).
Scientists from the University of Aberdeen heading for the North Atlantic to test a pioneering piece of research equipment that they believe will help improve how deep ocean ecosystems function and respond to a major oil spill.
