RMOTC is an energy testing center with unique capabilities, partnering with industry and academia to field test a broad range of products and
processes in a real-world environment. Located on a 10,000-acre U.S. Department of Energy site within Naval Petroleum Reserve No. 3 (NPR-3), RMOTC provides infrastructure
and expertise to validate new technology for our test partners.
As a DOE facility, RMOTC has no vested interest in any specific technology. We support the energy industry by testing new ideas specific to drilling,
oil & gas production, flow assurance, geothermal systems, renewable and alternative energies, carbon management, environmental impact mitigation, and more.
