LabWare has extensive experience across the world in the oil and gas industry. This includes hydrocarbon exploration both onshore and offshore. The search for more oil and natural gas to meet an expected increase in global energy demand has resulted in diversified exploration in terms of both geography and technology. Organisations have to tap new sources of oil and gas in environments where big finds are rarer and costlier to exploit. Potential fields lie deep under the seabed, in hostile and remote locations, requiring special pre-processing before transport or are located in shale rock formations that require expensive technology to develop. LabWare LIMS and ELN provide robust and proven technology that allows operation in remote locations that can be easily installed and supported.

LabWare LIMS is regularly used in the analysis of oil and gas from the exploration stage through to production and shipping to determine quality, and to comply with ISO 17025 regulations. LIMS is widely used to track, manage and report on the large volume of data generated in the laboratory. Improved efficiency, quality and productivity are delivered by automating lab processes, workflows and connecting analytical instruments for automatic data capture.

In R&D laboratories ELN provides a complementary technology to handle experiments and unstructured data. A choice of spreadsheet or a document centric paradigm gives these labs a familiar and intuitive way of handling their data and workflows. It also allows different types of files to be added and managed in a controlled environment. This is particularly advantageous where laboratories can continue to use and add Excel calculations and yet join the corporate ELP environment with all the benefits of shared information, audit trails and cross project and department data mining. Of course, LabWare LIMS and ELN are elegantly connected providing seamless integration with one ELP audit trail to aid regulatory compliance.

Many of our customers have multi-site enterprise implementations deployed from a central database. This allows organisations to harmonize their laboratory operations and reduce costs. Standardization on LIMS technology allows the Company to capitalize on knowledge sharing among all the laboratories and improve the availability of high caliber expertise to support the existing labs and future expansions.
