Prospect Awarded Test Chamber Concept Design Contract

Aberdeen, Scotland, (July 7, 2011) — Prospect, a multi-disciplinary engineering solutions provider to the oil and gas and renewable energy sectors, has been selected to support the next phase of development of an innovative drilling project. Drawing on Prospect's considerable structural, mechanical and computer-aided-design expertise, the team will deliver a conceptual design of a high-pressure high-temperature test chamber for the drilling system. The test chamber will be capable of simulating the harsh surroundings associated with downhole environments to gauge performance under such extreme conditions.
