Routine Rock Properties instruments measure the properties of core samples, providing a physical model of reservoir characterization. The measured data are used to define storage capacity (porosity), the magnitude and distribution of flow capacity (permeablility), and fluid saturation, as well as lithology and other parameters.
This product category includes instruments and systems for rock properties measurement, for imaging and preservation of cores, and for measurement of rock properties at the well site.
Rock Properties include all measurements and tests which would routinely be made on core samples. These samples can include conventional core, plugs drilled from conventional core, rotary sidewall cores, and percussion sidewall cores.
Core Laboratories will normally run these tests on every sample. This would also include all core handling and sample acquisition required to provide samples for these measurements, as well as other special core analysis and petrographic analysis.
For special applications, please contact the Engineering Department at Core Lab Instruments.
