Oil and gas Improved recovery
About half of the oil in known North Sea fields has been produced and finding more is becoming increasingly difficult. A good alternative is to find means of extracting the remaining known oil, i.e. Enhanced Oil Recovery. SINTEF's research in this direction involves lab experiments and simulation of the use of low saline water, polymers, surfactants, CO2, microbes and nanotechnology.
Formation Physics Laboratory
The Formation Physics Laboratory provides laboratory services covering a wide variety of aspects within petroleum rock mechanics and related areas. We do testing both separately for external clients, and as part of the Formation Physics Department’s research projects.
Accelerating a shift towards deployment of CCS in Europe through a cross-border CO2 transport infrastructure
DeFACTO - Demonstration of Flow Assurance for CO2 Transport Operations
Provide technology development and demonstration that enable improved large-scale CO2 transport and injection.
Lab results could improve offshore production economics
Norwegian laboratory tests show that gas wells can continue to be productive longer than we predicted, before they need expensive “anti-ageing” support.
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.
