SBT Energy’s disruptive technology gives a range of new tools for the development of offshore projects, allowing new configurations and technical solutions for previously uneconomic developments. It worked with OGIC and University of Edinburgh to bring its smart buoy concepts closer to market.
Clearwell Technology is developing a disruptive proprietary technology that could offer significant cost reductions on well P&A by eliminating the requirement to use a drilling rig.
Advanced downhole technology specialists DeltaTek Global identified an opportunity to enhance their patented QuikCure cementing process by developing a simulation tool. OGIC and the University of Aberdeen helped them take their idea further.
The European Space Agency (ESA) is launching a funding opportunity for the development of space-enabled predictive maintenance services. Areas of interest include oil and gas.
OGIC is supporting CorrosionRADAR on two projects related to its novel Corrosion under Insulation monitoring technology. A project with University of Strathclyde focused on sensor manufacturing technologies and testing under simulated CUI conditions
Dr Vahid Vaziri is a Research Fellow at the Centre for Applied Dynamics Research (CADR) at the University of Aberdeen. He gave us his insights on working with industry on oil and gas research – advice we think is practical and valuable for researchers and businesses alike.
The Kibosh Rapid Pipe Repair clamp was initially developed for domestic use and offers a quick and effective means of repairing a leaking pipe and accommodating leaking pipe fittings. Seeing an opportunity to adapt the clamp for use in the oil and gas sector, and thereby reduce downtime from loss of containment, Kibosh approached OGIC for helping in finding an academic partner.
