All our scientific approaches are subject to experimental laboratory validation, for this purpose, we are performing lab testing on different experimental facilities. We use: a full scale drilling simulator unique in Europe and a small-scale buckling facility.
Once we have validated our scientific models in laboratories, we need to confirm the software prediction against real field results data in real drilling operations. With our collaboration with major operators like Total, Statoil, Engie… we are able to achieve such extensive Field testing, calibration and validation of our implemented methodologies.
