SUEZ has unveiled a new laboratory in Tomball, Texas, US, which is expected to open in mid-2018. The new facility will enhance R&D efforts in the oil and gas industry, both upstream and downstream, and will provide industrial water, oil, microbiological, deposit and metallurgical failure testing.
In addition, the site will have an advanced technical training centre for engineers and scientists. Its design is modular, allowing for rapid and efficient lab adaptation to changing priorities and customer-specific projects. Currently designed for more than 80 researchers and support staff, additional support facilities have been engineered at the design phase, allowing for efficient and cost-effective expansion.
For the oil and gas industry, customised experimental simulation capabilities that closely mimic field environments are being added and upgraded. New research and application development efforts will continue in process and water chemistry for oil and gas production, transport, refining and petrochemicals. It also will allow for expert services and application technology as well as a new emphasis on sensors, monitoring solutions and digital domain to further advance our process-focused solutions.
