The energy industry is going through significant changes as the world gets more and more desirous of energy. There is a booming interest in new technology in upstream, mid-stream and downstream segments of the industry, driven by various factors, e.g., interest in unconventional energy sources, extraction of oil and gas from hard-to-reach places, processing of crude and natural gas streams with high contaminant levels, and regulatory changes that are tightening specifications. SciTech Patent Art’s research team has offered patent search, analysis and landscaping insights to the world’s leading oil companies in emerging technologies, identifying technology trends and white space analysis.

Understanding innovations in the energy, oil & gas industry requires a multi-disciplinary team that draws from chemical, electronics and mechanical engineering disciplines. In the upstream vertical, we often find the need for geophysicists and information technologists to work closely with the engineering team as well. SciTech Patent Art is uniquely qualified to handle such complex projects, given the many years of experience in this space.
