For over 17 years, C&A has been known for its custom testing abilities, and high integrity data. Clients say they use C&A because of its reputation of being fast and reliable, and its willingness to custom design and build equipment/procedures when needed.
C&A’s test offerings are designed to save the client both time and money. Without proper testing the completions process is most vulnerable to costly risks. Testing Data allows the client to choose the most effective screen, or best optimize their mud performance resulting in more “best case” scenarios in the field. Guess work, and trial-and-error are never the best approach. “Test or Be Tested” is never truer in the completions process.
