Premier Oilfield Group Expands Global Footprint, Opens New Lab in Noida, India
Premier Oilfield Group, LLC (“Premier”) has expanded its presence in South Asia by opening a new laboratory in Noida, India. Located 30 minutes southeast of New Delhi, the new facility will provide in-country core analysis capabilities for receiving, processing, analyzing and sub-sampling new and existing wellbore cores.
This investment reinforces Premier’s commitment to growing its presence in India, following a series of major contracts awarded to the company by Cairn India, a subsidiary of Vedanta Limited.
Premier Oilfield Group CEO, Matt Bell, commented that “the oil and gas industry is very active in India, with hundreds of basins ranging in maturity from frontier exploration to tertiary development. We are delighted to establish a permanent presence in the country, from which we will offer our clients in India the same high standard of consistent, relevant, and timely data generation and analysis services that they have come to expect from our other laboratories around the world.”
Sub-samples selected from cores in India will be transported to Premier’s centers of excellence in Houston, Aberdeen, and Cairo for advanced analysis, giving its clients access to the full range of Premier’s workflows and solutions.
“This will allow us to bring our global expertise in areas such as formation damage analysis, enhanced oil recovery, and unconventional reservoir characterization to bear on challenges faced by operators in India,” Bell explained.
Premier Oilfield Group (India) is located at: A-144, Sector 63, Noida, Uttar Pradesh 201301.
