Climate change has become a major issue throughout the lifetime of the centre. Natural gas is a vital transition fuel in the green transition to a low-carbon economy. While global politicians debate the best ways to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement, the need to develop technology and methods along the gas value chain has never been higher. Since its creation in 2003, the Gas Technology Centre (GTS) provided an essential platform for cooperation across NTNU, SINTEF and Equinor. Although the centre’s goals changed throughout its life, there was always a focus on developing a thriving research ecosystem for gas technologies. This included promoting collaboration and cooperation, lobbying for funding programmes, creating project applications in focus areas, and funding education to ensure a steady flow of the next generation of gas technology researchers. In this report, we’ve chosen to look back at a few of the success stories to show what is possible when universities, research institutes and the private sector come together to work on shared societal interests. The gas technology expertise developed under GTS can go on to contribute towards the transition to a low carbon future. The centre’s legacy will live on, not just in the physical infrastructure now in place but also in the spirit of collaboration and cooperation that must continue if we are to achieve a successful green transition.
