Total Exploration & Production Alternative Subsurface Data (TEP ASD)

Encouraging the development of alternative techniques for measurement in wells

Located in Artigueloutan, in the South-West of France, our center is open to all oil and gas companies such as manufacturers, service companies, IOCs, NOCs, but also to all subsurface domains such as hydrogeology, geothermal and mining. To boost  the ecosystem of service companies and manufacturers in logging, TEP-ASD has built a logging calibration facility to help suppliers to increase business opportunities and improve their tools. 

The center provides 29 standards in 18 silos: rock, fluid, sand, aluminum and composite. These standards are used for the characterization of a large number of logging probes and metrological monitoring. The rock standards used in our workshop are carefully prepared following a certified drying and soaking process. Each rock is chosen for its mineralogical, geochemical and petro-physical properties, a wide range of lithologies (11 types) such as limestone, dolomite, sandstone, etc.

The center provides calibration and qualification processes through international oil and gas measurements standards (International System of Units). 

TotalEnergies has decided to (close its subsidiary TEPASD and) stop the activities of its physical measurements center in Artigueloutan (located in the south west of France, near Pau).

Aware of the technical interest of this facility, TotalEnergies is considering to hand over this unique facility, whose accreditation COFRAC ISO 17025 has been suspended since 2021/02/25 due to the activities end, or sell the center and its equipment.
