Solving the industry’s most challenging downhole problems

All of Northstar’s equipment and solutions are developed and supported by a dedicated, in-house team of professional engineers. We solve field-driven problems from start to finish, including conceptual design and analysis, prototyping and validation testing. We certify our products to demanding industry standards at our test facility, using high-pressure, high-temperature test programs in our HPHT deep well simulator. As an integrated product and service company, we leverage our own international footprint to prove our products in the field.

Our engineering group can tailor products to the needs of every customer. We quickly bring new solutions to market, using lean product development cycle.

Our tools are continuously improved based on feedback from the field. To run a Northstar tool is to run a product that’s been built to exacting specifications, benefited from decades of engineering and service experience, and can be run with certainty.
