An innovative approach to capturing the history of the North Sea

27 April 2017

Do you have a story to tell about working in oil and gas? What memories and experiences do you have that are captured on camera, and how does life offshore now compare to the early days of North Sea exploration and production?

‘Capturing the Energy’, in partnership with Aberdeen-based software development company Intellicore, is creating an interactive mobile app featuring stories from the archives, with images, audio and video brought to life using image recognition and augmented reality.

Project Development Officer Joe Chapman says: “It’s an exciting initiative that aims to showcase the remarkable progress and innovation seen in our industry over the past 50 years – and we want Oil & Gas UK members to help tell that story! If you have any good-quality photos, audio and video material of anything North Sea-related that you would be willing to share, or would like to have your recollections recorded for others to enjoy, we’d like to hear from you.”

The app is expected in time for SPE Offshore Europe on 5-8 September 2017. For more information, email [email protected] or phone 01224 272545.
