Oil and gas Development
SINTEF verifies development solutions by combining theoretical work with verification experiments in our laboratories. The verification tests include global behavior of the complete development solution in model scale, and product qualification of critical components in full scale. Safe development and installation in the field are central topics in such verification work, in order to minimize errors and thus reduce both HSE- and economical risks.
Lightweight Offshore Condenser Skid
The goal of the project Compact offshore condenser skid is to reduce the weight of such a skid by up to 50 percent.
LORCENIS – Long Lasting Reinforced Concrete for Energy Infrastructure under Severe Operating Conditions
The main goal of the LORCENIS project is to develop long lasting reinforced concrete for energy infrastructures under extreme operating conditions.
OCMOL – Oxidative coupling of Methane followed by Oligomerization to Liquids
The OCMOL project aims at developing an innovative chemical route adapted to the exploitation of small gas reservoirs from both a technical and an economic point of view. The corresponding process is, among others, based on oxidative coupling of methane followed by its subsequent oligomerization to liquids.
On the quest for high pressure thermodynamic and transport data for arc modelling
International cooperation is a key factor in research progress within new fields. This blog post by colleague Magne Rudshaug at IFE illustrates this. It is also a glimpse into the complexity of modelling a weld arc.
Direct Electrical Heating unblocks oil and gas pipelines
Blocked oil and gas pipelines is one of the industry’s big anxieties, because of loss of revenue. It has therefore been important to find solutions for oil and gas pipelines to avoid such incidents. The solution is Direct Electrical Heating (DEH).
