Draupner Energy is a special upstream energy company. The U.K. based team is amongst the boldest and most innovative gangs in the business. Draupner leverages crowdsourcing and networked innovation over an internet platform to find oil.
After their first crowdsourced campaign last year, Draupner Energy has now performed an internal evaluation of the potential of the blocks on offer in the 30th Offshore Licensing Round, focussing on the Northern North Sea (NNS), Outer Moray Firth (OMF) and Central North Sea (CNS).
They now ask again for the valuable input from the geoscience community.
140 existing UK discoveries are currently on offer for those with bold ideas on how to develop them. Kees Jongepier, Director of Draupner Energy, explains what they’re up to with the latest initiative:
“Draupner Energy sees this round as a very interesting but also challenging opportunity to curb the decline in UK production. We think crowdsourcing could be a critical element to make this happen.”
To tackle this challenge, Draupner seeks input from the geoscience community and is running a survey on their website were you can make an educated guess.
For each completed survey, Draupner will give £5 to charity and the three best discovery pickers wins a prize of £100 each.
