June 14, 2023

We are proud to offer a large range of services in Papua New Guinea (PNG) with a number of local locations in key industry hotspots across the country. 

With positive growth of the PNG economy since 2021, powered largely by the extractives sector, we have supplied a large number of services to aid major operations throughout the region. This has ranged from our Upstream services, and plant and terminal operations to drilling tool supply and inspection. 

Local service, global expertise

The increased demand for the highest level of quality in operations at many leading sites across PNG has seen us offer local service and experience with global expertise and backing. This has meant that we have employed a large number of personnel over the last two years, directly aiding industry growth within the region. 

A comprehensive range of services

In Papua New Guinea, we offer an extensive array of services designed to cater to exploration industries. Our surface well testing service evaluates productivity by gathering fluid samples, measuring pressure and temperature, and analyzing data to determine flow rate and other characteristics. Slickline operations involve setting and retrieving downhole tools, measuring wellbore characteristics, conducting interventions like perforating and logging, and supporting coiled tubing and snubbing operations.  We also offer exceptional Technical Staffing Services in PNG, providing skilled professionals to meet your project needs with unrivaled expertise and local knowledge

We ensure quality at every stage of the project lifecycle, from initial exploration to production, safeguarding operational excellence and project success.

Evaluating environmental impact

We also offer well site and PVC sampling services aimed at analyzing water or soil for contaminants that may pose risks to the environment, human health, or nearby communities. This analysis plays a crucial role in evaluating the potential impact of drilling activities on the surrounding environment. 

Additionally, our camp services are designed to meet the specific needs of industries operating in remote or challenging environments, including mining, oil and gas, construction, and exploration projects. These services prioritize supporting the operational requirements and well-being of personnel working in these remote sites.
