Baker Hughes cuts ribbon on Phase II of new tech center

Posted on 04 December 2008

“The CTI is the first – and currently, only – one of its kind in the industry, capable of testing full-size prototypes of the next generation of completion equipment in a test environment with gas pressure up to 40,000 psi and temperature up to 700° F,” said Rustom Mody, Vice President of Technology. “While there are test facilities that can test individual components at high ratings, none are capable of testing full-sized systems that simulate downhole conditions with the volumes of gas required for such extreme high-pressure and high-temperature testing.” Mr Mody is also a member of the programme committee for IADC World Drilling.
