The Challenge of North Sea Oil and Gas

Abstract : ENeRG, the European Network for Research in Geo-Energy, which groups various European research organizations involved in the development of energy resources contained in the earth's crust, has sponsored a study on The Outlookfor Oil and Gas Production in the North Sea , on behalf of the Commission of European Communities (DG XVII). The Institut français du pétrole (IFP) was the main participant in the group, which included the Centre for Marine and Petroleum Technology (CMPT, formerly PSTI, United Kingdom), Rogaland Research (RF, Norway), the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS in association with the Danish Energy Agency, DEA, Denmark) and Eniricerche SpA (Italy). The main objectives of this analysis are as follows:- Identify the need for new technologies or technological improvements in order to increase the production of oil and gas in the North Sea. - Forecast recovery levels that result from the implementation of these technologies. - Estimate the impact of these forecasts on the volume of activity and employment in the European oil and gas industry.
