DRHTC: a R&D center dedicated to Oil & Gas production
The Danish Hydrocarbon Research and Technology Center was founded to find answers to declining oil and gas production by researching and developing new and improved technological solutions.
DHRTC is researching how the recovery of oil and gas can be increased in the Danish North Sea. The aim is to demonstrate increased oil and gas recovery equivalent to 100 million barrels of oil in 2020.
Investing in better energy projects
In 2014 the Danish Underground Consortium, of which Total is a member, committed 1 billion DKK to a 10-year fund for the DHRTC.
Efforts are being made to establish cross-disciplinary partnerships with foreign institutions and private enterprises with a view to developing new technologies for recovering a larger proportion of Denmark's oil and gas from the North Sea.
DHRTC is a global center from which researchers can access important data and knowledge about the oil fields, and the research programmes are orchestrated from the center in partnership with research groups from our partner institutions.
