Research & Development

Technical expertise is important for us, and pursuing an active research programme is crucial for continuing our development as a technology-driven oil and gas company.

We participate in a number of projects together with research groups which enjoy an international reputation and are all leaders in their fields. Results from these ventures are continuously incorporated in licence work programmes so that they can help overcome geological and geophysical problems.
