Oil and Gas
Oil companies and the supplier industry are stamping their mark in earnest in the High North. Norut documents and analyzes the social consequences of the developments closely. Unmanned aircraft systems can play a significant role in environmental monitoring and emergency response. Norut has knowledge of both the operational challenges in the north, ice-related challenges on structures, the consequences of oil spills, oil-in-ice, natural gas as an energy source for local industry and the properties of various oil sorbents. Our competence is in demand from both oil companies and public authorities.
Norut Technology is underway with the development of recipes for treatment of oil-contaminated soil with microbial action. The method is both cheaper and more effective than earlier treatment methods.
When the accident has happened and the oil has leaked out it is important to be able to quickly determine the extent of the contamination. Norut Technology has tested a new measurement instrument that makes this work easier.
Information about ongoing and just finished social impact analyses and other socio-economic analyses with relevance for developing of the oil- and gas sector in the North.
Norut Narvik's structural engineering research group performs research and development tasks of high quality within many areas:
