Would you like to play a vital role in developing and driving a large research and innovation portfolio in a unique collaborative network of university and oil and gas industry? Do you have solid industrial experience and a strong track record within oil & gas development projects, operations or research? Then you might be the technical specialist that we are looking for at DHRTC. We are looking for three specialists within the areas of Production Technology, Production Chemistry and Production Facilities.
Danish Hydrocarbon Research and Technology Centre (DHRTC) was established in 2014 by the Danish Underground Consortium and DTU. DHRTC is an active partnership of five universities and research institutions: The Technical University of Denmark (DTU), Aalborg University (AAU), Aarhus University (AU), Copenhagen University (KU) and the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS). The Centre has received a starting grant of DKK 1 billion for a 10-year period. As part of the National Strategy on Oil and Gas, the Centre makes an ambitious and targeted effort to improve oil and gas recovery while also working to reduce environmental footprints in the Danish North Sea.
The Centre’s objectives are to progress knowledge and solutions with application potential, and to contribute to research-based teaching programs. The Centre operates in close collaboration with the industry and other research institutions in Denmark and abroad. The Centre aims at stimulating cross-disciplinary collaboration and dialogue where insight in existing fields and technologies meets knowledge of new technologies.
The project portfolio currently counts six research programmes with nearly 200 ongoing projects and an annual budget of some 100 mio. DKK. Further, two programmes addressing environmentally sustainable oil and gas recovery will be framed this year for a 2020 start up.
You will be part of the Technology Maturation group, a team of technical specialists and experienced industry professionals. The team is responsible for technical integration of research results. They play an instrumental role in bridging industry and academia by providing an industry perspective and experience to the research community and facilitating transfer of research results and technology to the industry.
