Energy department

IRIS has gathered all energy related R&D in a new department named IRIS Energy. In the new department, we will further develop the core activities within petroleum at the same time as renewable energy and CCS research will be strengthened.

The Energy department focuses on research and development of new technologies related to safe and environmentally sound exploration and exploitation of oil and gas, sustainable energy, and storage of carbon dioxide. Additional research areas include smart energy systems, natural gas based power generation, energy systems based on new fuels and geothermal energy.

The Energy department, along with its national and international research partners, is heavily engaged in long-term applied and theoretical R&D programs sponsored by the Research Council of Norway, the petroleum industry and the European Commission. Many of these R&D programs are open and can welcome new industrial participants and sponsors.

Target areas: Automated Drilling and Multiphase Reservoir Flow
