Cubility Test Center

Cubility is offering full-scale fluid and solids control testing at its state-of-the-art test center in Sandnes, Norway. Our facility is equipped with one test cell where the MudCube is permanently installed. This one test cell can be adapted as required for several types of equipment and as a common control room with remote control activation.

You can perform basic fluid analysis at our mud lab or mix the mud with any type of solids and cuttings to measure filtering efficiency. To ensure a seamless testing process, you can set up various test equipment in the technical rooms and store equipment and material in our warehouse. You can also take advantage of our well-equipped workshop with crane capabilities and adjacent offices and meeting rooms.
