The METANE project (Modeling underwater gas/oil blowout and LNG leak) is an extension of the BLOW OUT project and aims to extend the IT model developed in the BLOW OUT project to underwater oil leaks. The long-term aim is for Cedre to obtain a comprehensive IT system to describe the behaviour of gas or oil in the marine environment in the event of accidental discharge.
This project falls within Cedre’s research strategy which aims inter alia at developing operational tools to conduct its tasks.
