Data integration is a key to success

The Norne Field has been selected by NTNU and Equinor to become a pilot field for petroleum research and education, and the Norne pilot is central in much of the research and education at the in Department of Geoscience and Petroleum, NTNU. The Norne Field will be an integrated part of the village activities, aiming at developing new ideas for better and cleaner production. 

The Norne Field is located west of Sandnessjøen, and is operated by Equinor in Harstad. The area also includes several smaller fields, such as  of Alve, Svale and Stær. 

The  database of the Norne Field is installed and frequently updated at the Department of Geoscience and Petroleum. The data will be an important basis for all project work in the village.

Norne Production Ship

The group projects in Norne village include a wide variety of topics, from Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) to alternative energy sources for the Norne FPSO (Floating Production Storage and Offloading) ship.
The group projects will naturally have a basis in petroleum geosciences and petroleum engineering, however, students from other technology areas are welcomed. Sufficient training will be given as needed. Each group will consist of students from various study programs in order to form a multidisciplinary team. Each group will be assigned advisors both from NTNU and Equinor.
