Equipment certification followed by the international standards ISO, API based on the complex testing of the equipment is one of the main tasks of the Laboratory.
The important information for participants of the oil and gas equipment market is a certificate of equipment quality which means the independent verification and confirmation of the declared characteristics of the equipment.
One of the important areas of laboratory activity is the development of detailed testing methods followed by quality standards and industry equipment requirements.
The Laboratory is a combination of youth and experience and the wide range of experts of the center. As a testing ground, the laboratory activity is based on the use of unique bench complexes for testing mechanical and hydraulic strength, quality control of equipment design, and testing the functional characteristics of products. In addition to tests, the laboratory conducts expert studies on the effective selection and use of equipment in wells, fluid flow modeling, and risk analysis when using the equipment.
The primary mission of the SCL testing laboratory is to develop an independent center of expertise and downhole equipment qualification. The independence of the center means carrying out every procedure of expert opinions with independent testing standards of the laboratories. The qualification of the equipment is the result of complex testing assessing its quality or applicability. The expertise is a set of competencies in testing procedures, ensuring the unity of the measurement system, and modeling the physical and chemical processes in the well. The professionalism and integrity relations with our contractors are the valuable ground of the laboratory work.Dealing with our customers we base our work on the principles of competence, independence, and confidentiality.
