Proud to think laterally

An overview of Fishbones’ company culture by VP Global Sales, Marketing & Application Engineering, Thomas Jørgensen.


At Fishbones, we often talk about thinking laterally. While this is of course a reference to our unique lateral stimulation technology, it is also central to our values and culture as a company. Lateral thinking defines Fishbones’ bold, out of the box mentality that is rooted in a drive to go above and beyond for our technology, our customers, and our team.

Fishbones announces the completion of a new production well with Lundin Energy

22 May 2021

Fishbones and Lundin Energy Norway have announced the completion of a new production well on the Edvard Grieg field. 


Parts of the reservoir on Edvard Grieg consist of conglomerates, which is a hard and tight reservoir type. The Fishbones technology, which was used on the well, increases the effective drainage radius around the production wells by drilling several small holes out from the main well. This enables the production of increased oil in what is relatively tight reservoir rocks.
