To improve the reliability of advanced well equipment through the development of published industry standards and recommended practises for the qualification of the relevant completions equipment.

This will be achieved by:

  • Development of test qualification procedures and standards for advanced well equipments
  • Definition of how to measure sensor system performance
  • Sharing of results from prior testing work & lessons learnt
  • Setting a standard for vendors in terms of qualifying their technology for an advanced well application to raise the level of requirements
  • Gaining confidence in lifetime expectancy of downhole sensors by standard testing
  • Reducing the need for oil companies to run their own independent qualification testing
  • Assisting vendors to understand oil company requirements
  • Providing QA/ QC
