Visuray’s genesis was spawned by a Joint Industry Project (JIP) with BP, Shell and Statoil and the Research Council of Norway (RCN) through its DEMO2000 program. Visuray was funded in 2006 to qualify the physical principles behind the VR90 and the JIP provided guidance on the application of the technology. The JIP objectives were met in 2007 with a successful run of a prototype, which demonstrated the viability of the X-ray backscatter technique in borehole fluids.

Since that time, Visuray has developed a commercial grade 3-5/8’’ OD wireline tool, the VR90.

CMR (CHRISTIAN MICHELSEN RESEARCH)



CMR’s technology environment traces its roots back to 1930, as part of the Chr. Michelsen Institute (CMI). CMI was established to provide free and independent research, as a result of a bequest from former Norwegian prime minister and ship-owner Christian Michelsen. CMR conducts high-quality technology research in many areas. The company’s goal is to grow, to achieve a greater scope and a more solid foundation for its activities. CMR has a role to play, and will be an important partner and contributor to the primary industries of western Norway, and key national needs within energy/petroleum, marine/maritime and climate/environment. The company will further contribute to an increased level of interaction in the region by laying the groundwork for research clusters.
