Oil & gas innovation funding

Main Content


Recoverable North Sea reserves have been estimated to have a wholesale value up to £1.5 trillion. We're committed to helping the oil and gas industry ensure maximum recovery of these resources. 

Scotland's Oil & Gas Strategy 2012-2020 highlights the importance of innovation in underpinning future production levels by safely extending the life of existing fields and infrastructure and enabling the safe development of fields close to existing infrastructure. 

That's why Scottish Enterprise, working with the Industry Technology Facilitator (ITF), Highlands & Islands Enterprise and other partners, is running a series of innovation funding calls. 

The calls will offer funding support for companies with project ideas that have the potential to grow the company or companies concerned and contribute to increasing the safe recovery of Scotland’s oil and gas resources. Assistance is available to companies of all sizes throughout Scotland and, potentially, to those companies planning to establish a base here.
