PhD position at Department of Chemistry, Bergen Norway
Universitetet i Bergen
Research Fellow (PhD position) in Chemistry at Department of
Chemistry – re-announcement
At the Department of Chemistry ( http://www.kj.uib.no/ ) a 3-year
position as Research Fellow is available from 1 September 2008 (or
earlier) in the field of petroleum chemistry/acoustics within the
project “Epsilon multiphase flow measurement”.
The position is financed by “The Michelsen Centre for Industrial
Measurement Science and Technology” (
http://www.michelsencentre.com/ ), a centre for research based
innovation (CRI) financed by the Research Council of Norway and
partners in the CRI. The project is carried out in a cooperation
between the Department of Chemistry and the Department of Physics and
( http://ifteng.iportal.uib.no/ ) (UiB), Christian Michelsen Research
( http://www.michelsencentre.com/ ) (CMR), Bergen and the industry
partner Roxar ASA
( http://www.roxar.com/.). The place of work will be at the
Department of Chemistry.
The PhD work will focus on collecting chemical, electrical and
physical fluid data for representative petroleum production
wellstream systems and analysing the correlation between them, in
order to establish fluid property models that can result in more
reliable and accurate interpretation of the inputs to multiphase
meters. The focus will be on frequency dependent models for
calculation of complex permittivity for fluid mixtures that are
present during the production of hydrocarbons by the petroleum
industry. The models will be used to increase the accuracy and
reliability of the measurements under a wide range of flow
conditions. One topic of high interest is the effects of commonly
used process enhancing additives on the electromagnetic properties of
the production fluids. The work will address both chemical and
physical aspects of the systems, and the project requires integration
of elements from several research fields.
