The Gas Technology Centre NTNU-SINTEF (GTS) was established in 2003 and is the largest centre for gas technology research and education in Norway. GTS provides new knowledge and technology which will contribute to efficient, environmentally friendly and profitable utilization of natural gas.

The GTS focuses on exploring and exploiting the synergism of multidisciplinary research based on NTNU and SINTEF’s expertise that encompasses the entire value chain from the energy source to the end user.

The mission of GTS is to act as a common interface in gas technology R&D between NTNU/ SINTEF and the market.

GTS focuses on the natural gas value chain, from gas recources and transport, processing and LNG, and gas conversion.

Environmental aspects, such as emissions to air/water, energy efficiency renewables and carbon capture and storage (CCS) are integrated in all parts of the chain.

GTS works through six axes:

  • Increase the visibility of gas technology R&D at NTNU/SINTEF, both externally and internally
  • Promote new R&D opportunities and initiatives
  • Influence Norwegian national priorities
  • Ensure top quality education and recruitment of students and researchers
  • Be active in networking and internationalization activities
  • Promote internal coordination and synergism in gas technology R&D at NTNU/SINTEF
