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.
We have now published our case studies Flip Book, showcasing numerous examples of companies collaborating with Scottish Universities, alongside OGIC support, to complete innovative projects.OGIC Case Studies
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.
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
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.
Tubular Sciences Ltd is working on new technology for connecting metal-to-metal pipelines. By developing a patented, non-threaded, non-welded connector, the Aberdeen-based microbusiness is planning to offer a cost-effective alternative to traditional welded jointing methods.
Established in 1898, Scottish engineering company MacTaggart, Scott & Co. Ltd. (MTS) has a long history of innovation. Its product range includes hydraulic power units for submarines; these generally use the company’s Quiet Radial Piston pump (QRP), which can run for more than 60,000 hours and withstand significant sea water contamination.
Volcanic Basin Petroleum Research UK (VBPR) specialises in research and consultancy in volcanic basins and associated petroleum prospectivity challenges. With OGIC support, it worked with the University of Aberdeen on a project to apply resonance enhanced drilling to coring.
