THE Oil and Gas Technology Centre (OGTC) has been handed £3 million in funding to help it take over the duties of another energy innovation facility.

The Oil & Gas Innovation Centre will cease to exist as a brand with all it’s activity transferring to OGTC.

Finance came from the Scottish Funding Council (SFC), with support also provided by Scottish Enterprise (SE) and Highlands and Islands Enterprise.

Colette Cohen, OGTC chief executive, said:  “We’re delighted to welcome the OGIC team, harnessing their academic and SME connections to expand our focus on early stage technology development for the net zero future.

“We look forward to developing new collaborative earlier TRL projects that will help to bolster our capability and deliver the required energy transition at pace.”

The £3m SFC, Scottish Government and SE cash injection will be used specifically for the development of low-carbon technologies.

Dr Stuart Fancey, Scottish funding council director of research and innovation, said:  “Aligning the successes of OGIC, and in particular its strong academic and business links, with OGTC’s Net Zero focus, will give the oil and gas sector the best chance of transitioning to a net zero economy.”
