  2. 2. Worst Credible Process Fire: Experiences from the Norwegian Petroleum Industry

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Riskhantering (CI)

    Author : Linnéa Tengvall; [2019]
    Keywords : Worst Credible Process Fire; Norwegian offshore industry; offshore fire safety; offshore process safety; offshore design; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The term Worst Credible Process Fire (WCPF) was introduced to the Norwegian Petroleum Industry as a complement to the probabilistic approach to define design loads for offshore facilities. Currently there are mainly two documents about the WCPF being the SINTEF report (2017) and the definition in NORSOK S-001 (2018). READ MORE

  3. 3. A 3D Sub-Surface Characterisation of the Arnager Greensand, South-west Skåne

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Gregory Marcel Davies Jones; [2019]
    Keywords : Arnager Greensand; digitization; depth conversion; reservoir; storage potential;

    Abstract :  A surface characterisation of the Arnager Greensand in south Sweden, a deep saline aquifer found to be suitable for geological storage of CO2 or energy storage, was undertaken in this thesis. Vintage seismic reflection data only available as scanned tiff images of the final stacked sections were digitized and processed using modern interpretation software to provide new insights into the morphology of the Arnager Greensand and to analyse the reservoir’s potential as an energy storage unit.

  5. 5. Catalytic Upgrading of Fast Pyrolysis Bio-oil Using Zeolites

    University essay from KTH/Kraft- och värmeteknologi

    Author : Elena Wikberg; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Fast pyrolysis bio-oil is considered as a possible source for production of liquid bio-fuels and bio-chemicals enabling the necessary transition to a renewable energy system. In this Master’s thesis work the upgrading of fast pyrolysis bio-oils with Fluid Catalytic Cracking (FCC) conversion process at industrially relevant conditions is studied using Fluid Catalytic Cracking Micro Activity Test (FCC MAT) unit at RISE ETC in Piteå, Sweden.
