Academic Research Promotes Subsea Innovation

image of technical installation

To accelerate the level of innovations within the subsea oil and gas industry, a centre for research-based innovation within subsea production and processing, called SUBPRO, was started in 2015.

SUBPRO is headed by NTNU and supported by the Research Council of Norway and several major international oil companies and subsea system suppliers. The centre has now been in operation for over three years and has managed to establish itself as the most comprehensive academic research programme within oil and gas in Norway and is also the largest academic subsea R&D centre in the world.

What We Do

The centre works within a wide range of areas - from fundamental research on breakage of droplets and coalescence, to gas and oil and water treatment, system control, field architecture and reliability and safety.
The unique features of the SUBPRO centre is that it combines world class subsea competence and experience provided by the industry partners, with research performed by scientifically strong academic groups from NTNU.
