Meta Downhole Ltd (Meta) is shortlisted for the Commitment to Innovative Use of R&D award in the Northern Star Business Awards. The nomination was for the development of its liner hanger and packer products.

The award recognises companies that have demonstrated an innovative use to research and development to create commercial growth and gain competitive advantage.

The company’s latest developments have seen the creation of ground-breaking products, the Meta Liner Hanger and the Meta Permanent and the Meta Frac MorphPacker, which are set to disrupt the aforementioned markets.

The MorphPackers have been engineered to be simple, reliable and high end, but more affordable than others on the market, filling a vital gap in the sector.

“These are exciting developments, which are set to change the way in which the industry operates”, says Kevin Stewart, CEO of Meta.

Over the past few years, Meta has received a number of prestigious accolades for its ground-breaking technology, including a Queens Award for Enterprise, Platt’s Global Energy Award, Innovation of the Year in the Africa Oil and Gas Awards, Chamber of Commerce and Business Enterprise awards for innovation.

Winners will be announced an awards ceremony taking place at Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre on 24 September 2015.
