SPE Offshore Europe 2017 - Technology Zone

The #OE17TechZone showcased technologies beyond the 'usual suspects' that could help transform the industry.

The Oil & Gas Technology Centre's Technology Zone  at SPE Offshore Europe 2017 -  #OE17TechZone -  presented a series of technologies used in alternative sectors to encourage the oil and gas industry to think differently about the adoption of new solutions.

The #OE17TechZone brought operators, technology developers, supply chain, academia and regulators to help deliver a technology transformation for the North Sea.
