Our scientists, researchers and engineers are developing innovative technologies to help meet the world’s growing need for energy more sustainably.
Overcoming technology challenges
Our researchers, scientists and engineers develop innovative ways to find and safely produce new energy resources in harder-to-reach places and recover more oil and gas from fields where it would otherwise be too difficult or costly to extract.
Inside overcoming technology challenges
We are developing ways to unlock new energy resources safely and efficiently, often in more challenging environments.
We are developing advanced techniques to recover up to 30% more energy resources from existing oil fields.
