LAB TESTING

AND R&D 

 

Condor is proud to offer a local R&D facility with various research, development and testing capabilities to service Australasia’s oil & gas industry in collaboration with Edith Cowan University.

Condor's R&D collaboration with Edith Cowan University’s Centre for Sustainable Energy and Resources provides advanced domestic core and proppant testing plus various capabilities in the drilling, cementing, geochemistry and petrophysics domains which have not been available in Australasia until now

Condor's lab testing and R&D capabilities include:
