PETROMAKS2-Stort program petroleum

Enhanced Oil Recovery methods - Moving Science into Applications

Nye utvinningsmetoder har vært utviklet gjennom prosjektet. Lav salt vanninjeksjon har blitt kombinert med surfaktant for å dempe kapillaritet. Likeså har lav salt vann også blitt kombinert med polymer injeksjon. Hensikten er at polymer injeksjon akkumulerer olje i det porøse mediet (dannelse av ...

Mechanisms of Primary Migration

Hydrocarbon fluids of relevance to petroleum exploration are formed as organic-rich source rocks undergo burial and are subjected to increased temperature and pressure in sedimentary basins. Many mechanisms have been proposed for the subsequent migration of the fluids in the source rocks and the...

Empirical Understanding of Sedimentary Architecture

The shape and stacking of sedimentary bodies, especially sandstones which form hydrocarbon reservoirs, is controlled by a number of processes at the time of deposition. These include the rate of subsidence, the rate of sediment supply, the sedimentary env ironment, the climate and the grainsize o...

Deep water repair welding and hot tapping

Steel pipelines represent today the most important infrastructure for transport of oil and gas to onshore facilities in Norway and Europe. Up to now, subsea pipeline tie-ins and repair have been carried out with the assistance of divers. The recent trend is that oil and gas are explored at deepe...

Novel biomarkers for the prediction of health consequences from occupational exposure to benzene in 12 versus 8 h work shifts

There has recently been reported an increased risk of blood derived malignancies among Norwegian offshore workers. This could indicate that the exposure to carcinogenic benzene has been higher than published for this industry, or that the increased risk f or these malignancies can be found at low...
