Fluid Chemistry Laboratory
The Fluid Chemistry Laboratory is located in Bergen as an integrated part of the Department of Drilling and Well. Our main focus is on rheology, in particular visco-elastic properties of various fluids (drilling fluids, crude oil, cement, emulsions, polymer solutions, etc) and gas saturation at HPHT conditions.
Multiphase Flow Laboratory
The laboratory's main activity is flow assurance related research for the petroleum industry. It has contributed significantly to the development of multiphase flow simulators, and this is still an ongoing activity. Development of hydrate cold flow technology and sand transport studies are currently also main topics.
