In cooperation with IFE (Institutt for Energiteknikk) at Kjeller, Oliasoft is researching thermal propagation throughout fluids in production, injection, and circulation scenarios. Accurate representation of heat transfer includes effects for thermal radiation, thermal conduction, convection, and energy loss by phase changes.
IFE is at the forefront of several fields within international energy research and is known for creating OLGA, an industry-leading multiphase engine later acquired by multiple private companies.
Blowout & Kill physics
In cooperation with IRIS (International Research Institute of Stavanger), Oliasoft is researching Blowout & Kill physics to improve our BlowFlow™ and KillWell™ engines. This area has previously been poorly understood and the academic literature contains limited datasets for investigation.
IRIS AS – International Research Institute of Stavanger – is a recognized research institute with high focus on applied research, jointly owned by the University of Stavanger and the regional foundation Rogaland Research.
Advanced mechanics and fatigue
Together with Fedem Technology, a leading technology provider for dynamic mechanics simulations and life-time assessments, Oliasoft is developing a world class mechanics and fatigue simulator.
This technology will improve our ability to simulate and assess conditions on wellhead and conductor state in real-time, simulated with realistic sea and weather conditions.
