R&D in Gas

Industry Spotlight

How might a gas company benefit from R&D tax relief?

In an ever-evolving energy landscape, gas companies play a vital role in meeting global energy demands. To stay competitive and address complex challenges, these companies heavily rely on research and development (R&D) initiatives. R&D tax relief provides valuable support to gas companies, encouraging innovation and enabling them to reap substantial benefits.
By investing in R&D, gas companies can enhance exploration and production techniques, develop sustainable solutions, improve extraction methods, advance storage and distribution technologies, explore renewable gas options and foster collaboration. .

Some examples of projects and activities that could qualify for research and development tax relief include:

R&D efforts can focus on improving extraction methods, such as hydraulic fracturing (fracking) and horizontal drilling.

This includes developing advanced techniques, tools and equipment to optimise gas recovery, reduce environmental impact and ensure responsible resource extraction.

Gas companies can benefit from R&D tax relief to address environmental challenges and reduce their carbon footprint.

This involves research and development of cleaner and more efficient technologies for carbon capture and storage, emissions reduction and sustainable production practices.

R&D tax relief enables gas companies to invest in innovative exploration and production techniques.

This includes the development of advanced seismic imaging technologies, reservoir modelling and drilling techniques, leading to more efficient and cost-effective extraction processes.

R&D tax relief supports the development of cutting-edge technologies for gas storage and distribution.

This includes advancements in liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminals, pipeline monitoring systems and gas compression techniques, ensuring safe and efficient transportation of gas to end-users.

Gas companies can leverage R&D tax relief to invest in renewable gas technologies, such as biomethane and hydrogen production.

 This involves developing innovative processes and infrastructure for capturing, purifying and utilising renewable gases as a sustainable energy source.
