With support from the Petroleum Safety Authority Norway (PSA) and other industry actors, the independent research organisation SINTEF has established a research project to learn more about the effects and hazards of underwater gas blowouts.

The project will:

  • develop computational models for gas transport in the water
  • develop and conduct experiments to improve insight and to enhance the validation basis of the computational models
