Research & Development

LAB TESTED. FIELD VALIDATED.

DrillScan scientists test models using experimental facilities that include a full scale drilling simulator and a small-scale buckling facility (Mines ParisTech) and confirm software predictions against field data collected in the field. We are fiercely committed to scientific objectivity always working to improve results for our clients.
