“Our interest is to help clients improve their profitable production, as gains in efficiency have become the drive for unconventional operators.

“At Oilgen, we tailor our services to adapt to each client to ensure they are offered the best possible service, and our presence at the show will allow us to explain our processes to industry specialists.”
