    About Real Time Measurements Inc.

    Real Time is an independent Canadian oil and gas service company with its head office in Calgary, Alberta. The company was founded in December 1995 to exploit opportunities arising from the creative application of recent technological developments to solving selected oil and gas upstream measurement problems in more efficient ways. Real Time’s primary business activity revolves around the commercial development of premium quality sensor-to-desktop data gathering systems which are used primarily, although not exclusively, in oil and gas wells. The first commercial version of the technology is called Smart Drop Off (“SDO”). SDO provides customers with a secure internet based data port that links them to a high precision electronic pressure gauge down-hole in a well. The SDO sensor-to-desktop system dramatically improves well test operational efficiency and quality. To the best of management’s knowledge, at the present time, Real Time is the only company in the world that offers a service like SDO. The company is now developing a new technology platform called DataTrak. DataTrak will support future Real Time products and services. DataTrak will also be the backbone of a much improved next generation SDO.
