Who We Are

ANTARES is a German company, engineering and developing wireline logging tools for over 25 years. We currently have some 35 engineers, scientists and technicians. Stringent testing procedures and extensive quality control are key to our daily business and customer’s satisfaction. Our experienced team not only offers a large range of logging tools, they are also experienced at finding customized solutions for the special challenges of our clients. We support our customers at all levels and at all stages of the service lifetime of the equipment.

Our customers are located worldwide and work in a large variety of industries: oil and gas, cavern storage, mining, water management and marine research.

ANTARES offers a complete system, consisting of an ‘easy-to-use’ surface acquisition system as well as reliable and ruggedized down hole logging tools. ANTARES is also a ‘one-stop-shop’. If you let us know what equipment you require, we are capable of producing anything up to a fully equipped logging truck or offshore logging unit for you, which can be delivered to any location you require.

ANTARES joins the SUGAR III Research project funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy.

Sugar  -  Submarine Gas Hydrate Resources.

The joint project aligns German universities, research institutes and technology companies to investigate new technology for the research, exploration and extraction of submarine hydrate resources. They also investigate new concepts for gas transport. The hydrate extraction is coupled with a reposition (sequestration) of CO2 in sea sediments to minimize the possible impact on the environment of the hydrate removal.

The third phase of this project has currently started and focuses on key technologies for the exploration and production of methane gas from marine gas hydrates.

Within this frame, ANTARES has won a grant for R&D to develop a memory acoustic instrument, which will be used in transportable sea floor drilling rigs such as the MeBo200, developed by MARUM.

The acoustic instrument will provide valuable information regarding the lithology with possible gas bearing intervals.

Highly-automated measurement processes, short length of the instrument, high data-storage capacities and high resolution are the key features for the design.
