NSRI (National Subsea Research Initiative) is leading computer industry-style hackathons that it hopes will lead to ideas that can help unlock up to 1.5 billion barrels of oil from the North Sea.

A recent study revealed that 210 small pools of hydrocarbons are currently unable to be exploited economically.

NSRI is running a series of the workshop events – known as hackathons – to brain-storm new approaches to tackling these hard to reach reserves.
