Speed of Sound (Acoustic Cell) Measurement Facility
The Hydrates, Flow Assurance & Phase Equilibria group of the Institute of Petroleum Engineering in collaboration with the Laboratory of Phase Equilibria at the Paris School of Mines has launched a new joint industrial project.
The three year project examines the impact of impurities on carbon dioxide capture, transport and storage. When captured carbon dioxide is liquefied for transport and storage, it usually contains impurities such as nitrates, hydrates, sulphates, carbon monoxide and water. The presence of these impurities leads to challenging engineering, flow assurance issues, as well as an increase in processing costs.
High Pressure / High Temperature (HPHT) Facility
The project is being supported by:
- UK National Grid
