Our specialisms


Our innovative solutions help operators increase recovery factor and reduce operational costs. Our multidisciplinary skillset means we are uniquely placed to address these challenges.

With proven experience designing products to meet standards such as ATEX and API17S, we deliver solutions that meet commercial and performance requirements in demanding operating environments. 

Sensors & instrumentation

The breadth and depth of our expertise in deploying optical, electronic, magnetic and acoustic measurement techniques means we always identify the best approach for the challenge at hand.

Drawing on our successes in measurement, location and control technologies in other sectors, we often uncover opportunities to transfer key innovations and insights into oil and gas applications. 

Communications technologies

We operate one of the world's largest independent wireless development teams, with more than 200 experts covering every specialism, from short-range wireless connectivity to global satellite communication.

We’re adept at developing technology to reliably communicate critical data in extremely challenging environments, drawing upon our expertise in conventional and unconventional electromagnetic and radio frequency techniques. 

Data science

Increasingly found at the leading edge of technology in just about every field, data science has a powerful role to play in improving sensor performance.

Our mathematicians and data scientists extract valuable information from the noise. By skilfully managing and interpreting the vast quantity of data generated by the latest generation of sensors, we achieve optimal speed, accuracy and resolution, and find new ways to combine and cross-reference data from multiple sources to provide actionable information.  

How we work


From concept generation through to delivery of qualified hardware suitable for deployment topside, subsea and downhole, we combine a scientific, analytical approach with commercial awareness.

By understanding each client’s technical and commercial objectives, combined with our own deep scientific knowledge, we identify and develop technology that provides a genuine competitive advantage and commercial benefit.

Independent and technology agnostic, we don’t supply products directly to the oil and gas industry, instead allowing our clients to own the intellectual property we develop for them.

Tech, tools & facilities


Analytical laboratories
 

Analytical labs

Our laboratories provide high accuracy measurement and analysis for the wide range of projects we undertake. Specialist equipment includes a gas chromatography mass spectrometer (GCMS), a Matersizer particle size analyser, a Spraytec laser diffraction droplet size analyser, high-speed and thermal imaging cameras and rapid-development custom image analysis software.

Droplet
 

ANSYS tools

We’re experts in applying computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation tools, including CFX and Fluent, to conduct finite element analysis (FEA).

光学ラボ
 

光学ラボ

光学ラボでは、複雑で高精度な光学レイアウトを構築することができ、一般的に実装前のプロトタイプ設計や新技術の検証に使われます。ハイパワー(クラス4)レーザー加工用の設定可能なインターロック制御エリアを備えた6台のハイスペック光学ベンチと、干渉法、分光法、低ノイズ蛍光画像法、そして光子計数のための専門設備を備えています。ひとつのスペースを別々のレーザー制御エリアに分割することにより、複数の実験を同時に行うことができます。そのため、装置の台数にとらわれることなく創造的なソリューションを開発することができるのです。

Prototyping workshops
 

プロトタイプ生産工場

プロトタイプ生産工場(電子基板・メカ)では、アイデアを実現し、製品価値を説得力をもって実証するプロトタイプを生産しています。試作品は、ISO 9001、ISO 13485、およびISO 14001規制に準拠した極めて高い品質基準を維持しています。最新のCNCおよびフライス盤、旋盤、溶接ギア、ワイヤーハーネス、ケーブルアセンブリツールを使用することにより素早くパーツを製造し、検証作業やユーザートライアル用向けに実物大で動作可能なプロトタイプを組み立てることができます。
