RESMAN has a strong commitment to the protection of the environment and we continually strive to improve the potential impact we might have. Our tracer products are present in the produced water in extremely low concentrations, comparable to a few grains of sugar in a million litres of water.

Furthermore, RESMAN continually works to develop even more environmentally friendly tracers. The company has a policy of NOT deploying radioactive tracers.

Sooner or later almost all hydrocarbon producing wells will also start to produce water. In the Norwegian part of the North Sea, there is actually a higher production of water than hydrocarbons since 2006. The produced water is treated and reinjected, or discharged to sea, constituting one of the most important sources of pollution to sea from the oil industry.

By use of RESMAN’s monitoring technology, operators have information that can allow them to optimize the production of hydrocarbons and reduce significantly the production of water. In this way, the environmental impact of the oil industry can be reduced. RESMAN is certified to ISO 14001:2015.
We are committed to the protection of the environment with low carbon footprint and “Enhanced Oil Recovery” technology, which assist the operators to improve global environmental sustainability.

Reservoir surveillance is often expensive, unfeasible and/or risky. Meanwhile, a clear picture of what is happening in the well, is key to increase/enhance oil recovery. While operators see the value in the data provided by RESMAN monitoring systems, they want the data to be available for the life of the well. Only RESMAN offering can reach up to 10 years lifetime (inflow) and over 30 years of lifetime (interwell).

RESMAN’s tracer methodology is well-suited to monitor the storage condition and possible movements of CO2 in CCS projects. RESMAN tracers can therefore support CCS projects by acting as assurance that CO2 is contained in the desired sub-surface location.
