Technical Challenges

Increasing global energy demand, at a time when more assets are maturing and declining, is challenging the industry as never before. In response, technology is increasing the ability to discover and access hydrocarbon resources once thought to be inaccessible or unrecoverable. Technology is also enabling mature fields to be a significant source of production for many more years than initially planned. What follow are key industry challenges where our technology, experience, and commitment to service excellence are helping meet the demands of the future.
