Abstract

The Commission of the European Communities has, by means of the Directorate General for Energy, been involved since 1973 in a series of three year research and development programmes in the oil and gas sector. The purpose of this report is to present the research and development carried out under contract in the framework of this programme, which is aimed at the improvement of the oil and gas supply situation by developing these technologies associated with the location, production and transportation of oil and gas. The report begins by examining the oil and gas programme in the context of energy research and development within the Directorate General for Energy. It then presents a summary of the programme's content, its implementation and supervision structures and the results to date. Finally, a detailed summary of each of the contracts concluded up to the eighth round of projects (1982). This summary, which constitutes the main part of this report, is presented by subject area: namely: geophysics and prospecting; drilling; production systems; secondary and enhanced recovery; environmental influence on offshore; auxiliary ships and submersibles; pipeline laying; transport; natural gas technology; energy source; storage; and "miscellaneous".
