Earth Science Analytics AS (ESA) is excited to announce its support for the Centre for Sustainable Subsurface Resources (CSSR).
ESA will provide CSSR with access to its software and technical expertise across both data and geoscience. A formal announcement on the partnership, with full details of the programme, will be announced in the coming weeks.
The CSSR was recently granted 80m NOK in government funding. It exists to address the broader challenges for realization of zero-emissions petroleum operations on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.
Its main objective is to provide advanced understanding and innovative digital methods for the energy-efficient and optimal management of fields to achieve emissions goals and future CO2 and hydrogen storage.
Sarah Gasda, research director at NORCE and CSSR centre director.
“The centre has ambitions to deliver research at the forefront of technology to address the critical challenges of operating reservoirs under a new power paradigm and to facilitate sustainable underground energy storage. Support from technology providers is crucial for bridging the gap between research and industrial use, and we are excited to collaborate with Earth Science Analytics on establishing a pathway to commercialization”
Jan Martin Nordbotten, Professor of Mathematics at the University of Bergen, and Deputy Director of CSSR:
"Personally, I strongly believe that the Norwegian universities must take a more active role in transforming research and knowledge into technology and innovation. Through the CSSR, we have the opportunity to join forces from academia via the NORCE research institute, to innovative companies such as ESA. We expect this collaboration to be formative of the direction that our research will take over the coming decade."
Tatiana Mocguchaya, CEO of Earth Science Analytics said:
‘We look forward to sharing our extensive experience within geoscience, computer science and artificial intelligence with CSSR and taking a leading role in the development of sustainable subsurface resources on the Norwegian continental shelf and globally”.
