Our Laboratory Services

We offer a wide range of laboratory facilities

Our Laboratory facilities

Hydrafact has combined the laboratory facilities of the Centre for Gas Hydrate Research and the Centre for Flow Assurance Research with our own, providing access to some of the most advanced laboratory equipment Worldwide.

Our advanced experimental facilities span a wide range of PT conditions, from very low (-80 °C) to very high temperatures (400 °C), and from vacuum to ultra-high pressures (30,000 psia / 2 kbar). 

The majority of our set-ups are custom built in-house based on designs developed through many years of R&D experience and the full scope of our capabilities can be viewed in our brochure.
