A proven track record of flow computer expertise

We have built our industry-leading capabilities over almost 40 years spent at the cutting edge of flow computing. Many of our team have played key roles in the development of legacy flow computers and their associated metering software over several decades – most notably the S600 flow computer, which is used extensively around the world.

Our knowledge and expertise can be traced back even further to the 1980s and 1990s, when members of our team were part of Spectra-Tek, who were responsible for the development of several widely adopted flow computers – including the 869M Quantum and the Sentinel 500.

Our story continues as we strive constantly to grow our knowledge and develop ever more innovative metering solutions that meet the demands of the oil and gas industry. We have an expanding customer base that includes many international operators, such as BP, Shell, Total, Saudi Aramco, Talisman Energy, Total, Statoil, Petronas, Conoco Phillips, Maersk Oil and Centrica. Our focus is on developing these relationships and building new ones across the world.

A culture of continual improvement

Swinton Technology was established in 2001. In 2009, as our operations continued to grow, we moved to a purpose-built facility in Malton, North Yorkshire, which is our company headquarters.

When the business launched we defined our mission statement, and it remains as relevant to us today as it did then:

'To be the leading solutions and support provider for oil and gas metering computer systems across the globe.'

To remain as a leading international flow metering solutions provider, our expertise delivers an infrastructure built upon knowledge transfer, skills, product support and aftercare. Our turnkey divisions bring operational and financial value throughout customer relationships, all managed by our greatest asset: our people.

The Swinton Technology company culture is also one of continuous evolution, a search for effective solutions and the future-proofing of systems and processes. Well over two thirds of our completed systems worldwide are based on upgrades of older metering computer systems.
