25% of the world’s undiscovered oil and natural gas are believed to be located in the northern area. Theexploration of these remote areas will require better materials than available today due to the harshclimate conditions.
The overall objective is to establish criteria and solutions for safe and cost-effective application ofmaterials for hydrocarbon exploration and production in arctic regions.
Challenges■ Low design temperatures (down to -60°C)■ Large temperature variations■ Large deformations■ Long transport distances require light weight structuresR&D focus■ Steels■ Polymers and polymer coatings■ Composites
