Testing

drilling rig

 Xrig AS is an energy and technology commercialization and well simulation testing center.

We offer our clients the ability to test and qualify their technology with the aim of perfecting their technology portfolio.  The result of this is reduced overall well costs for the operators and for service companies to stay competitive.

In addition to technology verification we also offer well simulations, creating a realistic offshore environment much alike what can be expected during a live operation. One example to this is old and potentially difficult wells that needs to be re-entered. By simulating such an event in a controlled environment increases overall safety and decreases overall costs in relation to performing the live operation.

Checking and verifying the planned operational and technology methods in advance, is a low cost, low risk initiative compared to running first time trails offshore in uncertain environments.
We here at Xrig AS are always ready to do our part in making sure that you succeed with your technology commercialization projects.

Real time Remote testing operation

The COVID-19 pandemic forced us to think new and act new. This lead us to upgrade our drilling and data network system to allow for real time data monitoring and visual communication in order for our clients to continue their projects without being present at our testing facilities. We offer a fully remote testing experience where our clients can follow our every move, every data point, every step of the way. We perform all pre-work and BHA handling, including documented inspections, BHA preparations, procedural reviews, operation and data logging and transfer. Our data sampling rate is 10 points per second.
