Research & Development

The MB Petroleum Services Research & Development (MBPS R&D) department provides high-tech production solutions to the Oil & Gas industry. MBPS R&D provides clients with suitable customized solutions to their conventional and unconventional production problems to improve performance cost effectively and responsibly, ensuring that Health, Safety and Environmental integrity is uncompromised.

MBPS R&D provides its clients with a rich portfolio of new technologies and integrated products and services in the areas of Exploration and Production (E&P), drilling operations, well services, well testing services, artificial lift systems and self-optimizing pumping systems.

The R&D department is proud to have a team of well-qualified and committed professionals to assist clients in maximizing profitability and provide cost effective solutions. Our combined 80 years' experience in the industry along with the expertise of many outstanding engineers help us to solve the seemingly insolvable problems encountered in the Oil & Gas industry in a responsible and cost effective manner.

MBPS R&D has pioneered new technologies, which are first of their kind, such as Live well Intervention platform, Fully automated self optimizing sucker rod pumps and MB Flow Master to accurately measure oil, water and gas flow rates, fluid densities and water cuts without using any radioactive source material.

The department strives to improve production efficiency, develop innovative methodologies to boost hydrocarbon productivity of existing oil and gas fields, and pioneering new feasible technologies. These new technology solutions, which can enhance productivity of oil and gas, include:

Live Well Intervention Platform (LWIP)

LWIP is an in-house engineered, designed and fabricated platform structure, which enables live well entry and live surveillance to be carried out effectively.

Self-optimizing Beam Pump

Fully automated self-optimizing beam pumping unit, which enables continuous, maximum production, least production deferment and less operators intervention, hence making it safer and cost effective.

Online Multiphase Flow Meter (MB Flow Master)

The MB Flow Master is a non-nuclear, versatile, multi phase flow meter designed for true field conditions. It provides accurate, real-time measurements of oil, water and gas flow simultaneously. The real-time data capabilities of these meters allow for optimization of all types of critical production enhancement techniques. The small footprint and ease of operation make it an ideal instrument for online portable well testing.

High Capacity Sand Tolerant Sucker Rod pump

The field proven special plungers sizes (2-5) are reputed as most sand production tolerant pumps and can operate in severe abrasive conditions. These pumps can produce any rate between 50m3/d and 1000 m3/d.

Deep-set Sucker Rod Pumping

It is a friction type sucker rod driven pump, which can be set at a depth of (≥ 3000 meters) efficiently. The pump can operate at a very high stroke length of up to 7.3 meters with built in flexibility of stroke length variation. The surface unit can be isolated from the wellhead by a simple built-in slide mechanism, which makes it very cost-effective during workover.

Water Shut-off

Reservoir water shut-off service in both carbonate and sandstone reservoirs. We can shut-off in matrix and fractured reservoirs.

We offer our clients a rich portfolio of new technologies and integrated products and services, aimed at increasing oil and gas production and simultaneously reducing costs.

A new Production Services Department is Born

To answer the ever increasing call for Multi Phase metering and boosting services, MB Production Services has created a new service department: MPT.


MB Rig 01 completed a record of 4 LTI free years. The milestone became possible because of the excellent supervision, dedication and commitment of the Rig crew and the support and encouragement of the head office. The achievement also underlined the fact that the MB group's motto Safety First was no empty slogan but a living reality, a way of life and a way of doing business.
