The R&I at Teréga

Optimising efforts as part of a formalised and shared strategy

Teréga, with its Research & Innovation (R&I) organisation, is consolidating an applied research dynamic within present and future business lines. It favours a culture of innovation on the ground and helps to better serve the company's long-term strategy, by ensuring it is present in the "true" issues of the future. In particular, it helps to face the following major challenges:

Applied research within business lines – A multidisciplinary network

From monitoring and anticipation, to the implementation of innovations, R&I mobilises over 60 employees across different professions and within all company departments. This is one of our strengths.

Teréga has around fifty R&I projects in its portfolio, which come under 7 strategic themes: 

  • Natural gas storage: Improving knowledge of the underground environment where Teréga develops its natural gas storage.
  • New gases: Supporting evolutions on the gas market in Connection with the energy transition. Developing our expertise and adapting our infrastructures in service of new energies.
  • Energy efficiency: Reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, recovering and producing energy, optimising consumption.
  • Productivity: Improving industrial performance, particularly by developing remote monitoring and remote maintenance.
  • Digital transition: Providing business lines with innovative solutions, testing and operating new telecommunication networks.

A partnership approach

This organisation is based on numerous partnerships, with a preference for local connections (examples: framework agreement with the Pau UPPA1, projects with the Bidart ESTIA2 or the Bordeaux ENSEGID3, membership of the Avenia de Pau competitive cluster).

Teréga's R&I policy is committed to strengthening collaboration with universities/EPICs (public institutions of an industrial and commercial nature), private bodies and other gas operators. This allows access to a broader range of specialist skills.

Teréga is strongly committed to developing its R&I ecosystem. With this goal in mind, Teréga encourages its suppliers and service providers to innovate, by supporting them in the development of new products/services related to Teréga's needs.
