Thesis: Energy-efficient processing
My project's main objective is to study, develop, evaluate and validate modelling approaches to compute energy efficiency and environmental performance of hydrocarbon production systems (subsea and in-well components), including guidelines and recommendations for implementation
and operation of the technology in the Norwegian Continental Shelf. For this purpose, I shall determine and evaluate modelling approaches to compute and assess key performance indicators such as energy efficiency, greenhouse gas emissions, CO2 footprint,energy usage, thermodynamic
properties (e.g. exergy), and economic indicators.
