The intel gathered and shared by our unique, integrated process and one-of-a-kind team of experts informs the entire life cycle of an asset. Having analyzed nearly 100,000 wells for more than 500 clients in every major play in the world, no one can provide a clearer picture of an asset’s value.
Our sole purpose, the reason we exist, is to drive hydrocarbon reserves and facilitate energy independence. We help our clients identify, quantify and produce their hydrocarbon reserves – unconventional and conventional – without the added expense of running new logs.
A privately-owned, comprehensive global oilfield services company, NuTech was founded in 1998 by ex-Schlumberger and Numar/Halliburton executives who pioneered Nuclear Magnetic Resonance research and development.
