A LOOK INSIDE AES LABS

From a basic mud check to a complex investigation, AES is fully resourced with the people and tools necessary for answers. The table below lists select equipment and typical applications. Most equipment works as part of a comprehensive set of tests to solve customer problems, identify solutions, design new products, or perform quality control.

Through the CES Energy Solutions family of companies, we can access additional equipment when conditions require. In-house solutions accelerate response times and preserve confidentiality.

These systems aid in not only quality control, but also function as key investigative tools for downhole equipment issues or other complex challenges which may or may not be fluids related. For example, debris may be characterized between formation, fluid components or other solids. Quick answers prevent repeat issues and identify the root cause of problems.
