Emerson celebrates 25 years of downhole monitoring

Emerson’s Roxar PDMS (Permanent Downhole Monitoring System) supplying accurate and real-time downhole information to operators worldwide since 1987.


STAVANGER, NORWAY (August 2, 2012) -- Emerson Process Management and its Roxar business unit are celebrating the 25-year anniversary of downhole monitoring solutions, generating reliable and real-time downhole temperature, pressure and flow information from some of the world’s most remote offshore fields. The first Roxar PDMS (Permanent Downhole Monitoring System) was installed on Statoil's Gullfaks A field in 1987 and, twenty-five years on, close to 1,400 Roxar downhole gauges have been installed worldwide. The instrumentation gives operators increased insight into their production operations, resulting in the addressing of threats to flow assurance and optimal reservoir performance.

In addition to Roxar PDMS and the Roxar downhole HS gauges, designed  to operate in temperatures of up to 225°C, other downhole solutions include the Intelligent Downhole Network (IDN), which allows operators to install up to 32 instruments on a single cable; the Roxar Downhole Wireless PT Sensor System, which measures pressure behind the well casing in subsea wells; the recently launched Roxar Downhole Flow Sensor System, which, for the first time, generates multiphase flow measurements from downhole in the well; and Emerson’s production management software, Roxar Fieldwatch, which acts as a standard operator interface and analysis tool for all downhole instrumentation.

“It’s a real testament to the reliability and innovation of our solutions that we have led the way in downhole monitoring for so long – and at a time when more remote, deeper and more geologically complex offshore fields have only increased the operational challenges,” said Terje Baustad of Emerson Process Management. “In continuing to push the reservoir’s boundaries and through our latest innovations, we are bringing operators unrivalled insight and control over their production operations. We look forward to continuing to set the standards over the next 25 years.”
