where can i buy dapoxetine in india TRONDHEIM, NORWAY – StatoilHydro agreed to use RESMAN’s tracer system in a well in its Skinfaks field. Formation water was detected by the multiphase meter and was later verified by the RESMAN tracer system, providing the first proof of the technology through a field test.
“We decided to try out the tracer-based permanent monitoring in a well with sufficient instrumentation to verify the technology. When we observed water breakthrough, we shut in the different DIACS zones and concluded from the muiltiphase meter that the water was coming from the toe,” said Eirik Aspenes, Process Engineer of StatoilHydro. “RESMAN’s tracer system verified that the water was coming from the toe section, which indicates that the technology works.”
“We are not surprised although delighted that what we see in the lab also works in the field. With what we are currently seeing in the lab, production monitoring is going to change dramatically to the better in the next few months,” said CEO Oddvar Solemsli of RESMAN.
RESMAN’s technology can prove a cost effective way of monitoring the clean-up of the long, horizontal Tyrihans wells and it is expected that the results obtained can be used for optimizing future wells on the field. Production from Tyrihans is scheduled to commence in 2009 and is expected to reach an initial plateau of around 70 000 barrels of oil equivalent in 2011 from the subsea development tied back to the nearby Kristin field. The current drilling schedule includes up to 11 wells.
RESMAN’s previous projects have been focused on detection of unwanted water breakthrough in production wells and include so far three wells on the Norwegian Continental Shelf while a fourth well will be installed in the Danish sector in January 2008. The Tyrihans project represents a big leap for RESMAN, which plans to offer its technology for clean-up and water breakthrough monitoring to any type of completion within the next three years.
According to RESMAN CEO Oddvar Solemsli, “This project confirms our belief that oil companies see a cost effective alternative in our monitoring technology also for optimizing well design and we are currently negotiating similar contracts with international customers. We strongly believe that RESMAN will become part of most field development plans for both this service and for water breakthrough monitoring within the next three years.”
Siri Subsurface Manager Preben Jensen, of DONG Energy, said, “We were looking for a cost effective way to monitor water breakthrough in our wells, and RESMAN has proved to be an innovative company offering a technology that has great potential.” DONG has operated the Siri field since 2002 and continues its efforts to increase the life and value of the field facilities by using leading-edge technologies.
RESMAN’s previous installations have been in wire wrap sand screens, but this installation will make use of premanufactured premium screens – a big leap for RESMAN, which plans to offer its technology to any type of completion within the next three years.
According to RESMAN CEO Oddvar Solemsli, “We have now demonstrated not only our ability to develop tracers, but also the ability to adapt to the operational reality of our customers. We can now integrate our tracers with any sand screen on the market. Our next step will be to develop techniques for other completion scenarios.”
During RESMAN’s annual shareholders’ meeting 25 June 2007, a new Board of Directors was appointed. The BoD includes professionals with extensive industry background and proven track record in building industrial companies. During the same meeting the company’s shareholders agreed to fund the first phase of an aggressive technology development programme.

This summer, two wells at the Skinfaks field in the Gullfaks/Tampen area will be equipped with RESMAN polymer matrix tracer technology. With RESMAN technology, operators can monitor clean-up, production start-up and water breakthrough in all well zones with an affordable, wireless setup. Leading Statoil reservoir engineer for the Tampen area, Lasse Stoltenberg said, “We see a potential for RESMAN’s technology, which we consider more cost effective than alternative technologies, in the Tampen area, and we have placed an order for Skinfaks as the first step.”
In the next 20 years, increasingly more of the world’s oil and gas will be produced from “difficult” wells that, due to their economical marginality or technical complexity, have to be monitored closely to ensure overall profitability. Without the ability to affordably monitor inflow, some of these wells—such as long horizontals, multilaterals, zone-isolated wells and wells in complex geometries—might not even be drilled due to the high risk.
RESMAN is experiencing increasing interest from customers in its low-cost wireless permanent monitoring technology and is currently working on several large projects. CEO Oddvar Solemsli said, “The Skinfaks order is an important milestone in our commercial success. Since its inception in 2005, the company has focused on delivering affordable wireless monitoring and control solutions without wires, batteries or downhole electronics.”
