VIDEO: Statoil Explains How PRM Works
In this video, Norwegian oil company Statoil explains how Permanent Reservoir Monitoring tools can help increase oil production from Snorre and Grane fields, located offshore Norway.
New seismic tools will result in 30 million extra barrels of oil from Snorre and Grane when Norway’s oil company Statoil and its partners now start using permanent reservoir monitoring (PRM). The technology will ensure a better understanding of the reservoirs.
Snorre and Grane are two oil fields with large remaining reserves. Now approx. 700 kilometres of seismic cables will be placed in trenches on the seabed on these two fields.
