Innovation on water

Ruden Geo Services is always looking for ways to improve and innovate their products. On a project for Statens Vegvesen, Ruden Geo Services tested the possibility to perform seismic reflection on water. This technique is widely used in the Oil & Gas industry, but is still in a research phase on this smaller scale for geotechnical purposes.

'The unexpected oil change'

We are honoured by the feature in Aftenposten A-Magasinet last weekend about the Somalia water project and our team. It is motivating us even more when the importance of our work is recognized!

Ruden Water

The world´s greatest challenge

The world needs water now, more than ever. If we don’t act, by 2030, water scarcity will displace between 24 million and 700 million people. Now, more than ever, the world needs us. The world needs the oil industry to take action. Used in a new context, the legacy of earlier surveys for petroleum is shifting the boundaries for groundwater. No other industry is closer to equivalent in relevant competence, resources and capacity. The leap from oil to water is not far, but a new and comprehensive Marshall-plan is needed and will be an aid to self-help in the long term.

'Da brønnparken kollapset, fant ingeniørene en langt bedre energi-løsning for Økern Portal'

This article describes how it was planned to provide the energy needs of the Økern Portal building in Oslo with 21 boreholes to 500m depth. During drilling it appeared to be very difficult to drill to these depths and Ruden Energy assisted in finding an alternative and smarter solution. Read about the collaboration of Ruden at the Økern Portal project in this article of Teknisk Ukeblad here (membership required).

How 40 year old information from the oil industry secured water for 2 million people

More than 40 years ago, seismic profiles were shot in connection with oil exploration along the coast of Tanzania, partly funded by Norwegian assistance programs. No oil was discovered at that time, and the information was shelved. 40 years later we discovered the structures that made it possible to recommend drilling for water.
