The search for oil and gas has three objectives: to identify and evaluate hydrocarbon-bearing reservoirs; to bring hydrocarbons to the surface safely and cost-effectively, without harming the environment; and to maximize the yield from each discovery. These objectives can be advanced only by ongoing research into all aspects of the exploration, drilling, and production processes.
Our research is often conducted in partnership with universities and customers. This ensures close contact with leading-edge research in all relevant disciplines, improves understanding of clients' challenges, and facilitates the validation of research ideas in field experiments at an early stage in the product development cycle.
