Understanding the fate of spilled oil in cold environments is essential for oil spill response in Arctic areas. The potential for oils to adhere to sea ice and mechanical skimmers can significantly impact the success of oil spill response and influence the fate of oil in the marine environment. Ther...

Improved knowledge of interactions between crude oil and solid surfaces is of great importance for understanding oil spill responses as well as oil spill behavior on land and in the near-shore environment. Here, the goal was to study how crude oils with various physicochemical properties interacted ...

The primary aim of this research was to identify the physicochemical properties of the oil and water-in-oil (W/O) emulsions used during a NOFO Oil-on-Water field trials that reduced the performance of the skimmers recovery efficacy during the trials. Extensive studies were performed at SINTEF labora...

Dispersants are used to remove oils slicks from sea surfaces and to generate small oil-droplet dispersions, which may result in enhanced biodegradation of the oil. In this study, dispersibility and biodegradation of chemically dispersed oils with different physical-chemical properties (paraffinic, n...

Asphaltenes are “n-alkane insoluble” species in crude oil that stabilize water-in-oil emulsions. To understand asphaltene adsorption mechanisms at oil–water interfaces and coalescence blockage, we first studied the behavior in aliphatic oil–water systems in which asphaltenes are almost insoluble. Th...

The main objectives with this project have been to answer the following questions regarding dispersant injection during a subsea blowout. How do dispersant injection method, dispersant to oil ratio (DOR) and dispersant type affect oil droplet size (Volume Median Diameter – VMD)? How does the dispers...

Electrophoretic measurements were carried out as a function of pH for various fractions of an acidic crude oil dispersed in pure water and low salinity solutions of NaCl and CaCl2. The acidic and basic components were selectively extracted from the crude oil in order to elucidate their importance fo...
