LIBS PROTOTYPE BEGINS SIMULATED DOWNHOLE TESTING
The first real-time downhole assay prototype based on LIBS technology has reached the first stage of “real world” testing – analysis of a simulated drillhole in the lab based on real lithologies from the field.

PROGRAM 1: DRILLING TECHNOLOGIES
This Program will extend the capability of Coiled Tubing (CT) drilling so it can drill deeper, is steerable and delivers the highest quality sampling. Coiled tubing technology promises drilling at 1/5th the cost of conventional diamond drilling.
