A new facility to drive innovation and help unlock the full potential of the UK North Sea oil and gas industry has officially been opened.

The Oil & Gas Technology Centre’s Innovation Hub in Aberdeen will work with industry and technology providers to help them take their concepts from initial design to final implementation.

In the last six months, the centre has approved investment of more than £12 million for 21 projects.

It also aims to create the skills required for the oil and gas industry by partnering with schools, colleges and universities across the region.

Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said: “The hub’s potential is being embraced by an ever-increasing number of companies. They recognise its important role in addressing industry problems and how it can explore oil and gas relevant applications of technology adopted in other industries, such as renewables.”

New and innovative technologies will be discussed at Energy Live Expo on November 2nd in London. The last few free tickets are available for energy end users.
