Oilfield Services

PetroDesigns Inc. (United States)


Netoil’s Private engineering affiliate specializing in engineering and construction.

Although Netoil has its own engineering capabilities, most of its engineering is supplied by third-party engineering companies, most prominent of which is PetroDesigns Inc. of Texas and Louisiana in the United States.

PetroDesigns, which is privately held, owns all of the intellectual and trade properties of prior companies of Mr. Matthew Steckel (Chairman) and Mr. Ralph Hicks (President till his death in 2017), and in addition to traditional engineering, it works worldwide on implementation of their integrated oil and gas industry engineering design programs.

PetroDesigns coordinates with industry leaders on continuing development of their automated programs for oil and gas production facilities, which are evolving into a totally integrated and computerized design and costing method. This in turn will lead to worldwide standardization.

PetroDesigns also supplies consulting and project management services on numerous projects, most involving natural gas dewpoint control for both water and hydrocarbons.
