Since its inception in 2005 by Statoil Technology Invest, RESMAN has maintained exclusive focus on inflow monitoring with Intelligent Tracer® technology. As a result, the company is leading the evolution of their technology with focused R&D and has developed the most experienced team of experts in the industry.

R&D forerunners

RESMAN spends approximately NOK 50M ($8M) per year developing key proprietary technology.

RESMAN has an active IP strategy, where ownership to methods and key technology in our domain has been secured since the start-up of the company in 2005.

  • SINTEF is key partner in chemistry, materials and analysis. SINTEF is among Europe’s 4 largest R&D institutes with more than 2000 employees. Materials and Chemistry is one of 8 divisions within SINTEF.
  • The Institute for Energy Technology (IFE) is a selected partner in flow experiments and software development. IFE  is a research institute with approximately 600 employees and is known in the fields of tracer technology and multiphase flow assurance, and also as developers of OLGA. 

Tools to extract value from data

RESMAN has proven capabilities in delivering valued data interpretations for more many customers globally. Click here for the latest update of our track record.

The RESMAN proprietary models for inflow quantification have been verified in a full-scale flow-loop test at the Institute for Energy Technology (IFE) facilities near Oslo, Norway.

Through the Faster And Better Interpretation Project (FBI), analytical models and software have been developed in-house to interpret transient Intelligent Tracer concentration behavior to provide quantitative inflow contribution. 

The project is an ongoing JIP (2011 - present) with industry partners Statoil and Eni, and support from Innovation Norway.

Interpretation methods for quantification of flow have been formally qualified in the Statoil professional ladder, a milestone in industry acceptance for this unique offering. The signals and models are robust, providing the operators with insight in quantified flow from zones in the wells as well as for long tie-backs in multilateral subsea wells.
