Innovation and New Technologies

The Energy Technology unit provides key expertise and cutting-edge technologies to ensure the achievement of OMV’s strategic goal of decarbonization and becoming a net-zero emissions company by 2050.

Technology scouting, open innovation, and development is performed by a highly integrated team covering the entire value chain of energy projects: surface, subsurface, and laboratory. This is carried out in close collaboration with all OMV business locations including OMV Petrom and OMV (Norge) AS, external partners like Wien Energie, and renowned universities like Stanford, the University of Texas, and Montanuniversität Leoben.

Multidisciplinary project teams focus on evaluating technologies and performing essential work for the energy transition by building and providing expertise for future technology applications in geothermal energy, carbon capture, utilization, and storage, plus renewable energy.

Development of state-of-the-art online monitoring, emission control technologies, artificial intelligence and machine learning subsurface workflows, and water treatment ensure safe, sustainable, and stable operations worldwide.

The Energy Technology team demonstrates its position as a reliable technology and R&D partner by delivering technology to product solutions, supporting major field developments in the for ADNOC, and enabling stable natural gas production and supply through the deployment of technology for the OMV Petrom Neptun Deep project in Romania.

The OMV Tech Center & Lab (TCL) in Austria and the OMV Petrom Upstream Laboratory (ICPT) in Romania are highly specialized energy technology centers and laboratories that support all OMV assets globally to ensure safe and sustainable operations. Experts covering the fields of geosciences, physics, chemistry, geochemistry, microbiology, environmental sciences, reservoir and materials science focus on technology testing, improvement, and laboratory solutions to enable the implementation of new renewable energy technologies. Technologies that OMV successfully implements are showcased to the public at the OMV Innovation & Technology Center (ITC) in Austria.
