The RGU Oil and Gas Institute has a clear vision; to establish a world-class centre for teaching, innovation and research.

Oil and Gas Heritage

Based in Aberdeen, at the heart of the North Sea oil and gas industry, the Institute draws upon the vast experience, thought-leadership and exclusive facilities that RGU has built up over more than four decades of engagement with the sector.

This background allows the Institute to recognise and understand the increasing maturity of the North Sea, focusing upon the challenges and opportunities it presents, both in the UK and across the globe.

Linking Industry and Academia

The Institute provides the vital link between the oil and gas industry and RGU’s 300+ teaching and research staff, via four Knowledge Centres. Each Centre is led by experts in:

  • Drilling and Well Excellence
  • Operations Excellence
  • Decommissioning Excellence
  • Business Excellence
  • Subsea Excellence

RGU is a renowned leader in oil and gas teaching, training, innovation and research. The Institute’s Knowledge Centres will lead and build up that reputation, providing a clearly-defined interface between the skills and knowledge housed within the University and the wider oil and gas industry
