In 2020, the OEUK led Efficiency Task Force (ETF) established that UKCS Operators felt there was a lack of visibility of “Emerging and Field Proven” Technologies. As Vice Chair of the ETF , Colin Black, Managing Director of Carjon-NRG.com collaborated with former Shell Technology Managers and founders of TechnologyCatalogue.com, the B2B technology platform for the energy industry and energy transition, to create the NSTA Asset Life Cycle focused www.uk.energytechnologyplatform.com (UK ETP) . In 2023 the NSTA Sponsored the UK ETP and with their support the visibility of Technologies has increased significantly so now in 2024 Operators/End-Users in the UKCS and from around the world have 24/7 access to current information on over 760+ Technologies, Technical Specifications, Technology Readiness Levels (TRL) , Relative Business Impact and Track Record thus allowing Operators/End-Users to become “Fast followers” and Effectively Deploy Technologies. In 2023 over 920 Leads were generated for UK Technology companies via the UK ETP.
During OEUK ShareFair we will be able to demonstrate the value added by the UK Energy Technology Platform and the direct links to NSTA Asset Stewardship Expectation 8 “Technology Deployment” / “Technology Insights” and how Technology Companies can quickly upload their solutions on the UK ETP and gain UKCS and Global visibility for their innovations. This increased visibility also supports Oil, Gas, Offshore Wind, Hydrogen, CCUS etc NSTA “Pathfinder” projects highlighted on the NSTA Stand.
Bill Cattanach, NSTA Head of Supply Chain, said: “We are really pleased to be continuing our partnership with UK ETP, which is providing another valuable outlet for collaboration between suppliers and operators, helping the UK’s expert supply chain evolve into a global leader in energy transition projects, including carbon capture and storage.”
Carlo Procaccini, NSTA Chief Technical Officer, said: “The UK ETP has proven to be a valuable tool for accelerating the uptake of relevant technology. Thanks to the platform, UK operators have hundreds of technologies at their fingertips to optimise economic recovery whilst reducing emissions during our energy transition journey to net zero.”
