Electrophoresis to improve well construction?
Well construction in oil & gas and geothermal industries becomes increasingly complex and costly as the target depths increase. New ways to reduce costs and improve safety are therefore actively researched. Electrophoresis , a physicochemical effect known from the early 1800s, may help in reducing costs in drilling and well construction. In particular, it may facilitate cleaning of the equipment. It also may reduce energy consumption when drilling fluid and cement are pumped into the well.

Video - i4plastics aims to be a forerunner
One century ago, almost no plastic was used by mankind. Today, plastic products have infiltrated nearly all aspects of our private and professional lives. The next important transition will be the use of renewable resources for producing plastics and finding new value for plastics after its end of life. i4plastics aims to be a forerunner in this transition.
SFI Manufacturing's Annual Report 2016
SFI Manufacturing is a cross-disciplinary centre for research based innovations for competitive high value manufacturing in Norway. The research centre has had a successful 2016. – The first full year for SFI Manufacturing was a great one, says centre manager Sverre Gulbrandsen-Dahl.
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.
Compact Offshore Steam Cycles – Wasted Heat Recovered
In order to reduce the effects of global warming, Norway has like the EU set a goal of reducing its CO2 emissions by 40% by 2030.
Direct Electrical Heating unblocks oil and gas pipelines
Blocked oil and gas pipelines is one of the industry’s big anxieties, because of loss of revenue. It has therefore been important to find solutions for oil and gas pipelines to avoid such incidents. The solution is Direct Electrical Heating (DEH).
