SINTEF Industry Multiphase Transport and Flow Assurance
Multiphase transport and flow assurance
SINTEF has been a key research partner ever since oil and gas exploitation began on the Norwegian shelf 50 years ago. We have expertise across the entire value chain, from exploration to production and the storage of CO2. We perform research, development and consultancy for industrial challenges on multiphase flows and flow assurance. To ensure safe and economical oil and gas transport from the reservoir to point of sale, we validate technology by combining experimental work in different scales with model development and numerical simulation.
Always Clean Cooler pilot
A subsea cooler that enables long-distance cost-effective transport of oil and gas.
Digiwell: Digital wells for optimal production and drainage
The Digiwell project aims at pushing the knowledge front describing profit and energy consumption in oil production using "digital wells".
HIP Source: Heatwave Inflow Performance Source Characterization
The HIPlog system uses heat pulses released into the well fluid for real-time downhole flow monitoring. The system comprises autonomous heat sources installed in the well and software for interpretation of measured heat pulses. The HIP Source project seeks to create improved numerical models for the generated heat pulses.
Simulation model may reduce the climate footprint of oil production
Future offshore oil and gas fields are most likely to be “satellite developments” that are less expensive and emit less greenhouse gases than other fields because they do not require new production platforms. An innovative Norwegian computational tool called “Slug Capturing 2” is now enabling the design of longer pipelines that will allow many more fields to be developed as satellites.
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.
Groundbreaking Industrial Project in the Multiphase Flow Laboratories at SINTEF og IFE
SINTEF Petroleum Research and Institutt for Energiteknikk (IFE) have entered into agreement with seven companies on a new and exciting data collection project. The recently upgraded laboratories at Tiller and Kjeller now go directly into industrial use.
