PETROSIM - Simulation of petrophysical parameters

In order to predict the production of a petroleum reservoir it is important to derive good mathematical models for the geology of the reservoir. The petrophysical parameters, i.e. permeability, porosity and saturations, will affect the flow of the oil, water and gas present in the reservoir, and it is therefore important to generate realistic models of these.

PETweb I – Privacy-respecting Identity Management for e-Norge

Note: The active project is Petweb II.

Project goal

The overall goal is to enable communicating organisations to include privacy enhancing technologies (PETs) in large-scale web-based services for the general public and customers.


The motivation for this project arises from the following:

PETWeb II – Privacy-respecting Identity Management for e-Norge

The project addresses societal challenges concerning the future of electronic identifiers and electronic identities. The implication of such identities range from today’s crime (identity theft) to long-term privacy implications and fundamental rights such as informational self-determination.


This project investigates the potential of deep learning for national mapping of cultural heritage from airborne laser scanning data.

PLA ― Personlig (mobil) læringsarena

Læringssituasjon med mester og lærlingProsjektet tok sikte på å utvikle en personlig, adaptiv og mobil læringsarena (personlig mobil læringsarena, PLA) rettet inn mot grupper i skole og voksenopplæring med elever som av ulike grunner står i fare for å falle fra utdanningen.

Polar Ice

Shipping activity in the Arctic is increasing.  Cruise liners are bringing more tourists to the cold and remote latitudes.  The oil & gas industry is searching for and producing oil and natural gas in areas close to or even in waters infested by ice or icebergs.  As 25 % of the unexploited fossil hydrocarbons of our planet are deposited under Arctic waters, this activity will continue, and move even further northwards.

Predicting blood donor arrival

Blood donationThe scheduling strategies used at blood collection centers worldwide vary considerably. At the Blood Bank of Oslo, fixed appointments are used. However, on average, only 60% of blood donors with an appointment actually show up. Overbooking is therefore necesarry, but because the day-to-day variations in donor arrival are large, this may lead to long waiting times before donation.

Predicting soccer tournaments

During all the FIFA World Cups since 1998 and the UEFA European Football Championships since 2000, NR has had it's own web-site. Here we considered the winner chances etc. of every team participating in the tournaments, based on probability models. The calculations were updated daily and presented at the web-site, as well as in the Norwegian newspapers such as Dagbladet, VG, Aftenposten and the tv station TV 2.

Prediction of biomass in Norwegian fish farms

Fish farmThe aim of the project was to construct a modeling framework for forecasting of biomass and slaughtering in Norwegian fish farms, in order to ensure predictable and optimal production of farmed fish.
