30 YEARS OF EXCELLENCE

  • LOOKING BACK TO THE PAST

    During the late eighties and early nineties, Metrol concentrated on the High Pressure High Temperature well testing market. One of our products, the Salamander gauge, set the benchmark for measuring in hostile downhole environments. We developed strong and lasting relationships with our clients.

  • REFLECTING ON GROWTH

    Through the nineties, Metrol broadened it's horizons, by developing downhole wireless telemetry systems. At the turn of the millenium, we led the way by developing full reservoir to surface wireless telemetry delivering the WORLD'S FIRST complete downhole wireless communication system. Over the next decade we introduced wireless valve technology, multi-zone testing and changed the well testing landscape forever. By 2010 we had 255 clients
    (and growing...).

  • INFLUENCING THE FUTURE

    With links to leading institutes of technology and focus on delivering reliable wireless telemetry, Metrol now look forward to continuing our success for the next 30 years. Our skills and innovation keep us at the forefront of data gathering in hostile downhole conditions. Metrol has a history of understanding the challenges and providing future solutions today.
