26 TECHNOLOGIES FOR THE FUTURE

February 26, 2018

Technologies from the oil and gas industry provide benefits far beyond their original purpose.

 

Giant fish farms far out to sea, satellite measurement of wind speeds in the upper atmosphere, and miniature measuring devices for acute medicine.

Norway’s oil and gas industry is the most important driver of innovation and technology development in Norwegian society. These innovations are also being transferred on a large scale to other social sectors.

This is the second report from the Norwegian Oil and Gas Association to present examples of such transfers, now in collaboration with Sintef Technology and Society.

A total of 26 cases document how technology developed for use in the petroleum sector is also being applied to create new and better products in other industries, new commercial activity and new jobs.
