A Heriot-Watt University study, which has received funding from the Oil and Gas Technology Centre (OGTC) and support from the UK regulator, the Oil and Gas Authority (OGA), offshore operators and data owners will examine the gas fields of the Southern North Sea to determine the critical factors that will allow carbon to be safely stored over long, geologocal timescales.

The team will use data from the OGA’s National Data Repository (NDR), one of the largest-ever single open releases of field and infrastructure data from the UK’s oil and gas industry, which was made open access for the first time in 2019.
