The case centered on claims by Hydro and Corrocean that Cormon had infringed their sand quantification patent, key aspects of which Cormon has always maintained to be invalidated by prior art. The verdict confirms the opinion of the European Patent Office and the UK Patent Office that using Electrical Resistance to measure erosion was not novel at the time of the Norwegian filing.
The verdict clears the way for the sale in Norway of Cormon's technologically superior sand erosion detectors based on CEIONŽ technology.
Cormon is a monitoring solutions company specializing in the oil and gas industry, serving both the upstream and downstream markets. Cormon Ltd is registered in England and has recently expanded its presence in Houston through a wholly owned subsidiary Cormon Inc.
