SINTEF, ECONNECT develop ‘pioneering’ flow rate prediction tool


Energy companies SINTEF Energy Research (SINTEF) and ECONNECT Energy (ECONNECT) have developed a computational fluid dynamic (CFD) modelling tool to predict liquefied natural gas (LNG), ammonia and liquid carbon dioxide (LCO2) flow rates in floating, flexible cryogenic pipes.

With no previous reliable modelling in place, the tool will provide flow rate data for gases subjected to various pressure and temperature parameters. 

The tool – which is supported by Innovation Norway and Norwegian Research Council – aims to optimise flow rate configuration of floating pipes and increase gas value chain efficiency. 

Stating that SINTEF is ‘pleased and proud’ to contribute to the project, David Berstad, Project Manager and Research Scientist, SINTEF, added, “Together with ECONNECT we contribute to shaping the future’s energy solutions.”
