Video: Aberdeen University unveils £500,000 kit to revitalise North Sea drilling

Aberdeen University yesterday unveiled a new £500,000 piece of equipment that will help to spur exploration and drilling in the North Sea. The rock deformation kit, which was built to the university’s specifications by Sanchez Technologies in France, effectively brings the earth’s crust to the laboratory. It tests how rock and cement samples react to high pressure, high temperature (HPHI) conditions, before providing data that informs the decisions of exploration and drilling companies.
