Our Instruments Division works closely with our diverse range of laboratories to create, test, and tailor equipment that precisely meets the requirements of any reservoir characterization study. Leveraging our Instruments Division to equip your laboratory guarantees access to customized tools, meticulously configured by our team of technical experts.
This comprehensive service offers a complete, "one-stop" solution for a turn-key laboratory package. In addition to equipment, Core Lab also delivers robust calculation and database software solutions, accompanied by comprehensive training conducted by our team of laboratory analysis experts to address all your reservoir description needs, including PVT, Core, and EOR analyses.
Fluid Properties Instruments
The equipment can measure pressures, temperatures and volumes automatically and record them by data acquisition processing. It can be used to measure bubble or dew point and gas/liquid interface.
To ensure a proper recombination of gas and oil samples at high pressure and high temperature, recombination cells are available with a hydraulic piston, Teflon/Vespel packing, magnetic stirrer agitation, and manual or automatic rocking.
Perform viscosity studies with a low volume of monophasic fluid (less than 3 ml fixed volume) at reservoir conditions for gas and liquid samples. These capillary viscometers measure the fluid viscosity by analyzing the fluid pressure variation passing through a capillary tube. Equipment software provides for automatic measurements and procedures.
Special Fluid Analysis Instruments
Sample Preparation Instruments
To support the time-sensitive data needs of exploitation and exploration, transportable units provide quality tests for PVT at any location.
