The LowEmission Centre will present a series of technical webinars. The webinars will showcase some of the work done in the Centre this year, and will also open the floor for technical discussions between the researchers and industry partners.
The format of the webinar is generally as follows:
Duration: maximum 1 hour - 30-40 min technical presentation - 20-30 min Q&A
The webinar is open to LowEmission partners, only.
LowEmission Webinar - Case study Partial Decarbonization of Johan Castberg by Ammonia Addition in Fuel
While full decarbonization of power production by Carbon free fuels is awaiting development, industrial validation, and adapted infrastructure of future technologies, an opportune head start could be to directly add ammonia, a widely transported product, into the natural gas.
LowEmission webinar - Wet Design Cables
The cleanliness of extruded cross-linked polyethylene cables has been steadily improved from the introduction of such cables in the late 60ties until today. This webinar will provide an overview of subsea cables with especial emphasis of design measures to mitigate ageing due to water molecule migration into the electrical insulation system.
LowEmission Webinar - Development of low-emission subsurface drainage strategies
Water-flooding is a widely used technique for pressure maintenance or improving sweep efficiency. Incremental recovery of water-flooding ranges from 15 to 25%. Nonetheless, water-flooding is an energy-intensive activity. Water injection systems typically consume 30 to 50% of field total power consumption. For many oilfields on the Norwegian Continental Shelf (NCS), the percentage is much higher, where more than half of energy on a platform goes to water injection pumps. Thus, water-flooding significantly contributes to the amount of GHG emission.
LowEmission Webinar - Decision support for offshore supply planning
About 1 mill tonnes of CO2 emission on the NCS is attributed to offshore supply ships. Better planning and operation of the supply fleet can bring considerable emission reductions, ca 9000t per yer per ship with an active fleet of around 400 vessels. Offshore upstream supply planning is a complex task with many conditions that need to be considered. Meanwhile it is performed by planners with no advanced decision support tools.
