This international oil and gas services giant has a large footprint in the greater Houston area, and PDG has been privileged to serve its numerous design needs at their various locations. This new Rock and Fluids Laboratory facility is a consolidation of three labs from Oklahoma, Texas, and Idaho into a single 106,000 square foot facility.

The facility includes wet chemistry, rock, oil, organic, inorganic, synthesis, H2S, ASTM, gas chromatograph, and deep-water laboratories with support areas. The core lab includes geomechanics, core analysis, microscopy, petrology, high energy scanning, Dean-Stark analysis, rock mechanics testing with overhead cranes, hazardous material storage, cooler/freezer storage, and core viewing. This Laboratory functions as the single largest laboratory facility worldwide for this company.
