Emerson downhole monitoring systems picked for Equinor’s Rosebank Field

Roxar monitoring technology will help Norwegian energy company develop the largest untapped oil field in the North Sea
Norwegian energy producer Equinor reported June 6 that it’s picked Emerson to provide advanced well-completion monitoring systems for its Rosebank oil-and-gas development project is located offshore from the U.K. in the North Sea.
Continuous access to pressure and temperature data from active wells is a critical requirement to operate safely, optimize production, and maintain well integrity. However, collecting this data is challenging due to the harsh, local environment, limited onsite staff, and safety risks associated with active wells.
Emerson’s Roxar downhole-monitoring tools will provide operational insights needed to assist Equinor in maintaining high production levels, managing risk, and meeting regulatory requirements. The system will let Equinor employ advanced, oil-recovery techniques, optimize reservoir performance and verify well integrity in real time.
The Rosebank field is a key asset in the U.K.’s effort to achieve energy security. It’s estimated to contain more than 300 million barrels of recoverable oil resources. The first phase of development will utilize a refurbished, electrification-ready floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel connected to a subsea production system. Startup of the Rosebank field’s first phase is scheduled for 2026-27.
