Sensing of Oil


The focus is on developing current sensing equipment developed by NLIR and proving that it works on oil in water. This will lead to the development of a new offshore sensing tool. Implementation: An improvement in the measurement of oil in water and the realisation of its real-time registration will lead to an environmental improvement in the quality of water discharged into the sea.

Solution idea

The project therefore aims to develop a new method for the real-time registration of oil in water for production water. This is currently extracted and tested manually, and the water produced is discharged to the sea.
