In 2009, ProAnalysis has affirmed its position as a market leader in Norway as StatoilHydro, through its engineering partners, has placed orders for 12 new online Oil in Water measurement points to the Snorre A, Heidrun, Gjøa and Statfjord A, B and C platforms, most of which are repeat sales indicating that previous deliveries has satisfied the customers? needs. Both single-probe and dual-probe systems ? connecting two in-line measurement points to one control unit ? has been ordered.
 
Oil in Water is an important parameter at most oil producing fields due to increasing water volumes and focus on efficient produced water treatment. After testing several online Oil in Water monitors available in the market at the Statfjord field, ProAnalysis? in-line probe solution was chosen as best suited to the produced water application.

Now, we have a technology that works in even the most challenging process environments. No doubt, the experiences with StatoilHydro over these years have contributed to this.?
