We get it; there's more going on than we know.

An asset that can't be inspected?  A pipeline, a tank or vessel that can't be measured ?

How then do you plan an effective program when you haven't got all of the necessary information? 

This is what drives innovation and invention.

This is why Petritek are here.








Petritek have experienced a broad variety of asset and process conditions in numerous sectors, in particular in oil &gas as well as mining.  The latent capabilities that exist within proven technologies as well as their integration supported by smart algorithms is Petite's expertise.  

Petritek have invented, innovated and educated and delivered improvements upon existing applications, increased knowledge for planning and operations and more.  


The question you should ask is - When can we meet?

Question:  When a condition exists within your asset or a behaviour of your process that you either have not seen before or do not properly understand, what are your choices?


Answer: Apply expertise where it belongs.  Your people are in their roles for precisely that reason.  Petritek are in our roles for precisely that reason.  


A good conversation makes a big difference.

What we will do:

Listen and understand what conditions are and what information you need.

Interrogate all available data to appreciate the gap.

Demonstrate the approach and method to eliminate the gap and provide new information.


Invent or innovate? 

Why invent?

To invent something takes more time than using something that is already available, simple logic.  What if there is nothing available because a problem exists that is not being treated for that reason.  When a situation is accommodated because that is the only apparent choice that is the history of invention.


This is why Petritek exists.

Why innovate?

To innovate takes more time than to use an existing option that is already available although not as effective as you might prefer, more simple logic.  


What if the available option was considered to be the best and no improvement was thought to be likely or necessary?  When a situation is accepted because that apparent choice serves the required purpose it takes others to see where improvements can be achieved, that is the history of innovation.


This is why Petritek exists.

Q:   How do I achieve that outcome with the gap in measurement and inspection technology that is available?.

A:   This is why Petritek exists.


We are superb partners to work with.
