What We Do

ITF provides a trusted facilitation resource and a robust process that allows its members and the technology development community to work together to tackle the industry’s technology needs

We, the Industry Technology Facilitator (ITF), represent our membership of international oil and gas operating and service companies to bring forward collaborative funding for research and development initiatives that address shared technology challenges.

As a not-for-profit organisation we are focused on the commercial needs of our members, and since 1999, have facilitated the launch of more than 220 projects from early stage concepts through to field trials and commercialisation.

Operating globally, we work with our members, the technology development network, industry stakeholders and Government bodies to tackle specific regional issues as well as defining areas of technology need from a global perspective, identifying opportunities for transfer of knowledge and expertise.

Our key objectives are to identify technology needs, foster innovation and facilitate the development and implementation of new technologies through our Rolling Technology Programme. 

As of February 5th 2018, it has been announced that ITF will be merging with the Oil & Gas Technology Centre. The merger is expected to be completed early in Q2 2018.
