Oil & Gas InstituteWhat we do

Strathclyde is dedicated to 'useful learning' and is committed to working with partners to tackle the major research challenges of the 21st century, while still developing the highly-skilled graduates needed by industry and the professions.

Our success to date is predicated on the conduct of excellent research, the provision of skilled graduates and a highly effective means of translating our research activities to meaningful outcomes that support innovation and deliver economic impact. Strathclyde has key strengths in Asset Integritty, the development of Subsea technology (Small Pools and Data Analytics). We also have skills in certain aspects of Flow Assurance, Decommissioning, as well as Well Completions.
