SINTEF has more than two decades of experience with gas hydrates in flowing systems, in particular with gas hydrate slurries, as e.g. in the efforts (with various industrial partners) on the “SATURN Cold Flow” technology since the turn of the century.

Our understanding of the phenomena involved in these processes has evolved steadily from the start, and we have recently presented our own “state-of-the-art” in Lund et. al*, which also serves as the basis for a number of new approaches to further study and technology development. This allow us to develop tools and understanding for better resource use, more efficient problem-solving, and more environmentally friendly oil and gas production.
