|How to extract 10% more oil from the Gullfaks Field?
Gullfaks Field came on production in 1986, Statoil planned that 46% of
the oil present in the field could be recovered. Today, more than 20
years later, the current plan calls for a recovery factor of 70%. The
improvement is due to the technology development since then. The
Gullfaks Village is part of this development, and every year the
student groups are addressing new challenges related to better recovery
As early as 2000 NTNU and Statoil
establishing an Experts in Team village at NTNU where student groups
are challenged to find new solutions to current problems related to the
production of the Gullfaks Field.
database of the Gullfaks Field is installed and regularly updated
at the Department of
Petroleum Engineering and Applied Geophysics at NTNU.
The data will be an important basis for all project work in the village.
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
a multidisciplinary team. Each group will be assigned advisors both
from NTNU and Statoil.
The second day of the Gullfaks Village a group of experts fra
Statoil in Bergen will spend a full day with the student groups
presenting current challenges in production of the Gullfaks Field. The
actual group projects will be defined by the groups after that. The
entire village will go to Bergen early in the semester in order to
discuss progress with the advisors from Statoil.
