TRONDHEIM, Norway --Statoil has contracted Resman to apply its polymer matrix tracer technology to two wells in Skinfaks field this summer. That follows a pilot test of the permanent well monitoring technology done at Urd field offshore Norway last year.

"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," says Lasse Stoltenberg, Statoil reservoir engineer for the Tampen area.

The polymer matrix tracer will monitor clean-up, production start-up, and water breakthrough in all the well zones, Resman says, with a wireless setup.

Resman is owned in part by Statoil, and also by Verdane Capital Partners, Sintef, IFE, and Resman employees.
