Modelling of oil thickness in the presence of an ice edge
A Proposed New Laboratory Protocol for Dispersant Effectiveness Testing Adapted for Subsea Dispersant Injection
Quantification of oil droplets under high pressure laboratory experiments simulating deep water oil releases and subsea dispersants injection (SSDI)
Interfacial tension between oil and seawater as a function of dispersant dosage
Prøvetaking av oljeprøver fra observasjoner ved Statfjord - Feltrapport 15-16. mai 2019 - OC2019 A-091
SINTEF ble kontaktet av NOFO 15.05.2019 angående observert overflateolje av tankskipet "Eagle Bergen" som på det tidspunktet gjennomførte lasting fra lastesystemet ca. 2 km fra Statfjord A plattformen. SINTEF bistod i perioden 15-16. mai med prøvetaking av oljeprøver fra beredskapsfartøyet "Stril Me...
Spreading of waxy oils on calm water
The objective of this paper is to provide a simple extension of the much-used gravity spreading model for oil on calm water to account for the spreading behavior of waxy crude oils in cold waters – including the observed retardation and eventual termination of spreading at certain oil film thickne...
Subsea dispersants injection (SSDI), effectiveness of different dispersant injection techniques – An experimental approach
The main objective with this study has been to study injection techniques for subsea dispersant injection (SSDI) to recommend techniques relevant for both laboratory studies and operational response equipment. The most significant factor was the injection point of the dispersant in relation to th...
Field Measurement of BC Emissions from Rolvsnes Well Test Flare - An empirical measurement of particulate emitted from a well test flare to generate a BC emission factor.
BC (smake particulate) was measured in the emissions from the Rolvsnes well test flare from the 6th - 9th of August 2018. Approximately 90% of the measured particulate matter was in the PM I range (1 micron in diameter and smaller). Smoke particulate this small can stay airborne for considerable tim...
Brasse crude oil – Properties and behaviour at sea
A weathering study has been conducted on Brasse crude oil. This study included a smallscale laboratory study and a meso-scale flume basin experiment. In addition, standardized dispersibility tests was conducted on various dispersants and their efficiency was determined using the SINTEF Minitower to...
