The main goal of KOPROD is to demonstrate methods and technology solutions for future competitive production of complex, small and medium volume products for cost-sensitive markets. The project is financed by the Norwegian Research Council's BIA-program.
INNO-Drill – Technology platform for research-based innovations in deep geothermal drilling
The main goal of INNO-Drill project is to extend, demonstrate, and make available a research-based technology platform to enable new and significantly more cost effective drilling tools and systems for deep geothermal wells in hard rock formations.
Descramble – logging tool
As partner in the ongoing Horizon 2020 project, SINTEF ICT is developing a High Temperature logging tool for measuring pressure and temperature in super critical geothermal wells.
The Arena-project i4plastics consists of 17 small and large companies and expertise centres in the plastics industry, with SINTEF Raufoss Manufacturing as formal host. Most of the involved companies have a strong international position, based on their strength in plastic-related materials and manufacturing processes.
Advances in sand production quantification
Many of the oil and gas reservoirs are found in weakly consolidated sandstone formations. During production sand grains might be loosened from the formation and follow the hydrocarbons.
DBS - Dynamic Borehole Stability while drilling in shales
The overall objective of DBS is to obtain better real time prediction of time dependent borehole stability in shales by accounting for operationally induced borehole dynamic effects
IO aspects for safe and efficient drilling
Integrated Operations (IO) is the integration of people, organizations, work processes and information technology to make smarter decisions. Several departments at SINTEF take part in the Center for Integrated Operations in the Petroleum Industry at NTNU which facilitate cross discipline R&D on how to improve cooperation between different parts of the organization (offshore/onshore, oil company/supplier) as well as the disciplines of reservoir management, drilling, production optimization, operation and maintenance, logistics and HSE.
