Statoil has awarded Roxar a two-year, $14 million contract extension for permanent downhole monitoring systems (PDMS) in the North Sea. The instrumentation provides critical information relating to downhole pressure and temperature, enabling Statoil to improve reservoir management and production.
Gunnar Hviding, MD of Roxar’s Flow Measurement business said, ‘This extension recognizes the role downhole instrumentation and associated data acquisition and management plays in improving oil and gas recovery. Roxar has proven its ability to maintain the highest product standards and deliver a reliable high-performance solution for reservoir management.’
Under the framework agreement, Roxar provides project planning, installation and maintenance services to help Statoil maximize its investment in downhole instrumentation. Roxar has held an agreement to be Statoil’s primary PDMS vendor in designated North Sea fields since 1987.
