CO2 vertical flow test rig

Client: SINTEF w/Equinor & Total / Schedule: 2019

Engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) of a fully integrated test-rig of a vertical flow circuit to be used for verification and testing experiments with CO2.

The rig comprises an 80 m deep well with a U-tube made of two vertical tubes (large and small diameter) installed inside the casing. The U-tube outside temperature is controlled by circulating a heating fluid inside the well casing. The U-tube arrangement is connected to an existing horizontal test rig for supply and return of the CO2. Arrangements for heating and/or cooling of the fluid is included in the design.
