Leading Laboratory & Sample Storage Facility for petroleum geological services in Brazil

Servicing the E&P industry since 1993

The Company

Established in 1993 by Christian Eckardt, geologist and petroleum geochemist with degrees from Aachen (Germany), Hamburg (Germany) and Bristol (UK) universities, Solintec has pioneered the provision of integrated geological services to the upstream Oil & Gas Industry in Brazil, servicing most national and international companies operating in the country.
Since the inauguration of its new and modern Laboratory & Storage Facility in Rio de Janeiro in 2011, the company has expanded and diversified its service portfolio continuously, through the implementation of a carefully-designed strategy of consistent and sustainable growth, while maintaining financial stability. As part of this strategy, in 2014 Solintec acquired the Laboratory for Rock and Fluid Characterization, formerly owned by OGX Petroleum & Gas, followed by additional investments in laboratory infrastructure and analytical equipment. In 2016, the Company acquired the majority of the equipment from BakerHughes' research laboratory, formerly located at the Federal University's (UFRJ) Technology Park, thus demonstrating its firm comittment with the oil and gas industry in Brazil.
Solintec offers a complete suite of services and one-stop operational support, ranging from geological wellsite support to the execution of customized R&D projects, all performed to the highest quality standards, and with a certified Local Content of 100 %, in an unparalleled combination of in-house and strategic network services.

The Company's team is composed of highly-qualified laboratory technicians, as well as renowned specialists from the industry and academic research institutions. Just like the founder of the Company, Christian Eckardt, President & CEO, the Board of Directors is composed of seasoned E&P professionals, with no less than 15 years of hands-on experience in their respective areas.
In addition to well-equipped laboratories, technicians with decades of hands-on experience, and a team of renown research scientists, Solintec boast a unique collection of proprietary subsurface samples (300+ wells, comprising core, cuttings, fluid samples, etc.), which allow for the performance of proprietary and spec studies, as well as customized R&D projects to the highest standards. As an ANP-registered company, access to legacy samples, through the official channels, is also granted.
