    • Hydrate Nucleation, Growth, and Induction 

      Kvamme, Bjørn; Aromada, Solomon Aforkoghene; Saeidi, Navid; Hustache-Marmou, Thomas; Gjerstad, Petter Berge (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      The first stage of any phase transition is a dynamic coupling of transport processes and thermodynamic changes. The free energy change of the phase transition must be negative and large enough to also overcome the penalty ...
    • Hydrate Production Philosophy and Thermodynamic Calculations 

      Kvamme, Bjørn; Zhan, Jinzhou; Wei, Na; Sun, Wantong; Saeidi, Navid; Pei, Jun; Kuznetsova, Tatiana (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      The amount of energy in the form of natural gas hydrates is huge and likely substantially more than twice the amount of worldwide conventional fossil fuel. Various ways to produce these hydrates have been proposed over the ...
    • Impacts of CO2 and H2S on the risk of hydrate formation during pipeline transport of natural gas 

      Aromada, Solomon Aforkoghene; Kvamme, Bjørn (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Evaluation of maximum content of water in natural gas before water condenses out at a given temperature and pressure is the initial step in hydrate risk analysis during pipeline transport of natural gas. The impacts of CO2 ...
    • Molecular Dynamics Study of Selective Adsorption of PCB on Activated Carbon 

      Jensen, Bjørnar; Kuznetsova, Tatiana; Kvamme, Bjørn; Oterhals, Åge (2011)
      The selectivity of PCB adsorption from fish oil onto activated carbon (AC) was investigated by means of molecular dynamics to determine the importance of molecular planarity. PCB congeners 77 and 118 were selected for ...
    • Numerical Modeling of Supercritical ‘Out-Salting’ in the “Atlantis II Deep” (Red Sea) Hydrothermal System 

      Hovland, Martin; Rueslåtten, Håkon; Kuznetsova, Tatiana; Kvamme, Bjørn; Fladmark, Gunnar E.; Johnsen, Hans Konrad (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2007)
      Supercritical water behaves close to that of a non-polar fluid and its ability to dissolve salt ions is very low. In rifting locations world-wide, where hot vents occur, it has been shown that seawater attains supercritical ...
    • Reactive Transport of CO2 in Saline Aquifers with implicit geomechanical analysis 

      Kvamme, Bjørn; Liu, Shunping (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2009)
      Geological storage of CO2 in saline aquifers is a promising way to reduce the concentration of the greenhouse gas in the atmosphere. Injection of CO2 will, however, lead to dissolution of minerals in regions of lowered pH ...
    • Simulation of geomechanical effects of CO2 injection in cold aquifers with possibility of hydrate formation 

      Kvamme, Bjørn; Jemai, Khaled; Chejara, Ashok; Vafaei, Mohammad Taghi (Conference object; Peer reviewed, 2011)
      The injection of CO2 in saline aquifers can have a significant impact on the geochemistry and the geo-mechanics of the reservoirs. Due to this injection, minerals will dissociate in regions with low pH or precipitate in ...
    • Simulation of hydrate dynamics in reservoirs 

      Kvamme, Bjørn; Vafaei, Mohammad Taghi; Chejara, Ashok; Jemai, Khaled (Conference object; Peer reviewed, 2011)
      Gas hydrates in reservoirs are generally not in thermodynamic equilibrium and there may be several competing phase transitions involving hydrate. Formation of carbon dioxide hydrates during aquifer storage of carbon dioxide ...

      Jemai, Khaled; Kvamme, Bjørn; Vafaei, Mohammad Taghi (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2014)
      Abstract: - Hydrates of CO2 and water can form during aquifer storage if the reservoir has regions where conditions of pressure and temperature are inside the hydrate forming conditions. A very common assumption is that ...
