The UKCS is one of the world’s most technologically advanced and diverse hydrocarbon provinces with a successful track record in pioneering new technologies throughout 50-year development and production history.

Sustaining investments in the adoption, adaption and development of mature and new technology solutions has the potential to transform development, production performance and cost effectiveness in the UKCS. Successful implementation of technology can extend the life of mature fields and reduce their eventual decommissioning costs. It can also improve the economics of many new, smaller or technically challenging fields, helping to unlock up to half of the 3 billion barrels of oil equivalent of existing discoveries not being developed.

The Technology Delivery Programme, which builds on the previously published Technology Strategy, is structured in three parts, covering the three main elements of the Technology Strategy and outlines six actions.

Its actions align with the objectives of the OGA Activity Plan 2017-2018.
