Background and activities

Advisor at Equinor Research Centre and professor at NTNU in gas technology and processing. Scientific focus areas are digitalization in process industry, field development of the future, energy efficient and low CO2 solutions, gas processing and flow assurance. Current work involves evaluation and developement of thermodynamic models for CO2 and hydrogen.

Have a look at the web-site we are developing for teaching, programming and process simulation related to gas technology.

Ongoing research and student projects:

- Digitalization in gas technolog
- Thermodynamics and physical propeties of hydrogen and carbon dioxide
- Development of proceses for unmanned field operation
- CO2 removal, injection and storage
- Gas Processing (acid gas, dehydration, dew point control)
- Subsea processing (development of new processes)
- Thermodynamics of oil and gas
- Flow assurance (wax control, hydrate control, scale)

Teaching:
Natural Gas Technology (TEP4185)
Natural gas, CO2 and hydrogen processing (TEP08)

List of Publications

Active involvement in developing simulation software for oil and gas processing (NeqSim). The simulation tool is developed in Java, with toolboxes in Matlab and Python. Students with interest for programming and process simulation is encouraged to take part in the development. The NeqSim source code is available from GitHub. Companies that are interested in scientific work (master/PhD) related to thermodynamics, process simulation, programming, machine learning can be involved by suggesting future focus and development.
