Stavanger, Norway (Nov 20, 2015) — RESMAN announces that its Chemical PLT® has now been successfully validated by seven conventional PLT operations with four operators globally.
The direct comparison between conventional PLTs and the Chemical PLT® was performed with seven PLT runs in a diverse mix of well designs, ranging from highly deviated Open Hole Gravel Packs to multi-stage hydraulic fracturing applications.
The results from these seven operations demonstrated that the tracer production logs obtained with RESMAN’s low-risk and interventionless technology are analogous to conventional PLTs, both in subsea and dry tree environments.
Additionally, this validation reinforces the robustness and accuracy of RESMAN’s patented inflow quantification model, which was initially verified in 2013 in a full-scale, flow-loop test with joint industry project (JIP) partners Eni and Statoil. The Flush Out™ quantification model has been successfully applied in several projects, mostly in complex subsea environments with up to 12.5 miles (20 km) of production tie back from the subsea wellhead to the production facility, and in commingled flow conditions.
“RESMAN was created to develop an alternative to high-risk and costly Production Logging Tools and wired sensors. This is precisely what we achieved: we pioneered and developed a high-value, low-risk solution to obtain reservoir inflow information without the risk, complexity and cost of other reservoir surveillance technologies” says CEO Torger Skillingstad. “We have always strived to improve and validate the accuracy of our technology. Today, I’m proud to announce that the reliability of the Chemical PLT® is now further reinforced by multiple, successful head-to-head comparisons with a trusted upstream technology [conventional PLTs].”
“Many operators have already reduced operating costs by replacing high-risk, high-cost intervention operations with RESMAN’s reliable and cost-effective surveillance technology” says CCO Brent Brough “This recent achievement gives all operators an additional confidence boost to replace their risky and costly intervention operations with our reliable and cost-effective technology”.
