Henning is an experienced entrepreneur, inventor and integrator with more than 25 patents in wellbore and wellhead technologies and methods and subsea technologies and interventions.

He started his oil field career in 1978 with Baker in Norway working internationally performing wireline, well testing, running well completions, including downhole surface readout and memory gauges.

After 7 years, he left to start his first company. Below are some highlights around the various companies Henning has co-founded, where his creativity and innovations were critical for the build-up:

Lasalle Pressure Data established 1985 in Norway which ultimately became the basis for Roxar’s permanent downhole gauge business Seawell’s wireline/slickline business.
Lasalle developed the first downhole permanent gauge systems used offshore Norway, and several of the technologies and methods created are now industry standard; tube encased downhole cables, cross coupling cable protectors, electrical subsea wellhead couplers, etc.

In 1987, Lasalle (then named IPR Services) established the company Exal IPR in Aberdeen, which was the foundation for Baker’s permanent reservoir monitoring section that came from Expro.

SubTech (Subsurface Technology AS), founded in 1992, was later sold to Weatherford and became the basis for Weatherford’s “intelligent” completions systems business unit, as well as the permanent downhole gauge business unit in EP Solutions.

In 2003, Shell Technology Ventures solicited his help to work with Sensornet, a London based company in which they had invested.  The company was grown from a two-man R&D team to the international technology and service company that is today part of Tendeka.

Seabed Rig

At the same time, he founded CITCO Spain SL and co-founded companies Well Technology AS, Gizmo Subsea AS, Optipump AS, and Seabed Rig AS (based on Henning´s patent) in Norway.

In 2006, Henning co-founded Ziebel, which consists of 2 business units:

Ziebel’s ZipLog well intervention, invented by Henning Hansen

ZipLog™ (Z-system), a wellbore intervention method based on pushing a semi stiff and spoolable carbon rod into live wellbores for logging purposes and MagLev (Zi-Lift), a new downhole electrical pump for artificial lift applications. Both are based on Henning’s patents and ideas.

Henning is engaged by RPSEA (USA) as a technical evaluator on R&D project proposals for the Unconventional Resources program (Shale oil & gas), well completions, well intervention & wellbore stimulation.
