We are pleased to announce that Erik Skogen has been appointed CEO of Pro Venture’s portfolio company WellStarter, based in Trondheim, as of August 20th 2018.
Erik is a senior manager with extensive experience in technology development, business development and customer delivery, mainly in the oilfield service sector. He has held management positions in e.g. Schlumberger and EMGS. Before coming to Wellstarter he was an assistant professor at NTNU, responsible for the development and delivery of all graduate level petrophysics courses at the Department of Geoscience and Petroleum.
Wellstarter AS is developing a patented downhole flow monitoring solution based on heat pulses released into the well stream. The system comprises autonomous heat source(s) and software for interpretation of resulting heat pulses. The heat source requires no cabling, does not release any material, and one or more sources can be installed along the productive zones of the well. The heat pulse is picked up by an existing downhole pressure/temperature gauge (PDG), and can be analysed real-time, onsite or remotely.
