Our R&D technological advances address the objective of curbing exploration and production costs, the stakes of climate change and the increasingly high expectations regarding industrial safety and environmental protection.

Located in Doha (Qatar), Houston (USA), Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), Aberdeen (United Kingdom) Stavanger (Norway) and Lacq (France), our six research centers are established in close proximity to the regional competency hubs of the Oil & Gas industry. With near 9,000 m² of laboratories and test sites equipped with cutting-edge technologies, their works are carried out in synergy with the nerve center of R&D for Exploration-Production branch in Lacq (France): the PERL.
