At Premier Oilfield Group, we help oil and gas companies make better exploration and production decisions by connecting the dots from samples to simulations and solutions.

We deliver timely, relevant data by doing the right experiments, doing those experiments right, and providing client-ready, fit-for-use results. At Premier, we apply expertise and workflows to answer critical questions through analysis and simulation. Finally, we integrate diverse measurements to diagnose and match actual well performance, and to design future development strategies.

To be successful in a world of lower-for-longer commodity prices, oil and gas companies must find and develop oil more efficiently, improving success rates, increasing hydrocarbon recovery factors, and controlling costs. At Premier, we strive to cultivate a positive environment in which expert scientists and engineers can thrive among their peers while they design novel concepts to solve extremely difficult problems, generating solutions for industry challenges together with the support of an internal lab and industry consultants.
