The Danish Hydrocarbon Research and Technology Centre (DHRTC) was formed in 2014, as part of Denmark's long-term national strategy for energy. On behalf of Danish Underground's Consortium partners Total, Noreco and the North Sea Fund, Maersk Oil (now Total) entered into an agreement with DTU to establish and operate the Danish Hydrocarbon Research and Technology Centre.

DHRTC conducts research to improve future production of oil and gas from the Danish North Sea. The Centre's research seeks to increase sustainability through improved cost efficiency and reduced environmental impact.

We strive to realize our vision by developing innovative solutions to specific challenges facing the energy sector. By managing a portfolio of research projects, we can ensure that our solutions make a difference to industry.

DHRTC is a partnership between five of Denmark's leading research institutions: Aalborg University, Aarhus University, University of Copenhagen, National Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS) and the Technical University of Denmark.

We gather teams across the network and utilize the cutting-edge expertise of each partner institution. In addition, we are in constant dialogue with industry partners and researchers outside DHRTC. We see this network approach as the most optimal approach to pioneering research that makes a difference in the field.
