Organization profile

DTU Offshore – Danish Offshore Technology Centre

DTU Offshore – Danish Offshore Technology Centre – is Denmark’s national R&D centre for offshore technologies and holds a central position in the energy transition. We develop research-based technology solutions for the offshore industry in the North Sea.

Our research encompasses carbon storage, digital solutions for the offshore sector, produced water management, well and platform maintenance, recovery of remaining oil and gas resources, and efficient and responsible abandonment of depleted oil and gas fields.

The centre is a public-private partnership between DTU, University of Copenhagen, Aarhus University, Aalborg University, and GEUS. 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 the center. We see this network approach as the best way to pioneering research that makes a difference in the field.

The centre is located at DTU and financially backed by the DUC partners: TotalEnergies, Noreco, and Nordsøfonden. The centre was formed in 2014 under the name Danish Hydrocarbon Research and Technology Centre as part of Denmark’s long-term national strategy for energy.
