Mission Statement

The RTC Technologies team is focused on bringing effective technologies to the upstream market that will enable the oil and gas property owner to realize additional returns on their investments. We not only focus on how safe exploration, drilling, completions, production and business operations and technologies work seamlessly together but also on the small details, i.e. how a tool connects to a carrier plug or why your noisy acoustic data sets can be effecting your characterization of your reservoir.
