Oil and gas Exploration
Applying geological, geophysical expertise and developing our in-house software we can model all elements of a petroleum prospect (from source rock, expulsion, migration, and trap, seal or cap rock). This can be used to evaluate and minimize uncertainties in exploration, development and production risk.
TREC - Thermo-responsive Elastomer Composites for cold climate application
The performance of elastomeric polymers depends on their environment, especially the local temperature. In order to develop successful seals for use in arctic oil production, new elastomer materials which perform at arctic temperatures are needed. The TREC project aims to develop new elastomeric materials for these and other low temperature applications.
Impact of Cenozoic structural development and glacial erosion on gas expansion, hydraulic fracturing and leakage in the Western Barents Sea area
Uplift and extensive glaciations during the late Pliocene-Pleistocene led to large volumes of sediments being eroded from continental shelf areas and deposited on the continental slopes (Laberg et al. 2010).
Palaeo-water depth reconstruction (SEMI PWD)
The SEMI Palaeo-Water Depth (PWD) module provides high resolution 3D palaeo-bathymetries for sedimentary basins. The method is based on present day stratigraphic depth maps as the main criterion for the PWD reconstruction. During the work-flow, different numeric modelling steps are combined including decompaction and compaction of stratigraphic units as well as the effect of isostatic compensation.
The SINTEF Petroleum Conference attracted the Oil and Gas industry
Representatives from 9 oil and gas operators and 4 service companies where among the 90 participants that joined us in Trondheim early February 2016.
Western Barents Sea Study 2012
SINTEF Petroleum Research is proud to announce the immediate availability of the regional petroleum systems/basin modelling study "Western Barents Sea Study 2012 (WBS 2012) – Mesozoic play types: evaluation and uncertainty".
