I have travelled to Pittsburgh to learn how I can use the simulation results most effectively to reduce the volume and weight of these heat exchangers.
Carbon capture and storage (CCS) to remove CO2 is becoming an important technology to combat climate change. But how to get rid of the waste from the removal process? Bacteria might be the answer
History was made on 5 October when the world got its new climate agreement. With enough countries signing up to the agreement, it was ratified and is therefore binding. On this date, President Obama stated: “History may well judge it as a turning point for the planet”. With the new
When your department has 67 PhD candidates, it can be a challenge to meet everybody and learn about their research. This is one of the many reasons why a committee of PhD candidates at the Department of Petroleum Engineering and Applied Geophysics (IPT) organize a “PhD Seminar” every semester. The
The reason for me being on the Arctic Ocean 2016 research cruise is primarily to gather data for my PhD research work. Let me tell you a bit about what I am doing up here.
Imagine beginning your studies in a field where everyone gets multiple job offers and then suddenly the market changes and you hear that the industry is dead- maybe forever. What do you do? Do you switch to a different department? Or do you continue studying in that field and hope
Did you know that the North Sea is full of half-eaten apples? Not literally of course, but I compare it with half-eaten apples because today we can only extract around 50 % of the oil on average. In other words, half of the oil is still remaining in the North
As it has become more difficult to find new reservoirs for oil and gas production, the petroleum industry has shifted focus to researching ways to extract more hydrocarbons out of reservoirs already in production. At NTNU, research is underway to investigate the potential of using nanofluids as a new agent
