Oxy Chooses Roxar for Downhole Monitoring Systems in Qatar

Roxar has entered into a three-year frame agreement with Occidental Petroleum of Qatar (OPQL) for the provision, installation and servicing of downhole instrument systems for permanent temperature and pressure monitoring.

Since 2001, Roxar has delivered 35 downhole pressure and temperature monitoring systems to OPQL. The equipment is being used to assist OPQL in the reservoir management of their offshore Idd El Shargi and North Dome developments.

"Qatar is an important region for our permanent downhole monitoring systems as well as our multiphase flow meters. All of our technologies give our clients the information they need to better manage their reservoirs and optimize their production. Winning this frame agreement extension with a major client like OPQL is strategically important for Roxar in the Middle East as a whole and typifies the increased demand for our products and services", says Gunnar Hviding, Managing Director for the instrumentation division in Roxar.
