Baker Hughes, a GE company, has a new site. Want to see how we’re inventing smarter ways to bring energy to the world?
The Houston Technology Center (HTC) began operations in 2000, integrating the technology development and manufacturing capabilities of our wireline well logging and Measurement While Drilling (MWD) formation evaluation product lines. The HTC is an integrated science, technology development and manufacturing organization conforming to ISO 9001, API Spec 7 and BASEEFA EN 13980 standards. The facility contains an environmental testing laboratory for the simulation of extreme downhole temperatures, pressures and vibrations. World class flow loops simulate multi-phase flow in vertical, deviated and horizontal wells for the testing of both wireline and MWD instruments. A fluid characterization lab has test formations that contain real and artificial rocks to simulate productive and non-productive formations. Four tanks are available for testing resistivity instruments.
