Cost-effective oil and gas production is becoming more important than ever. The availability of downhole information is seen to be the key to increasing oil-recovery efficiency, currently estimated to be 35% on average for North Sea oil-wells. The SD-series pressure sensor out-performs any existing downhole pressure gauge in the world and is to be made commercially-available to the global oil industry in the year 2000.
