In reservoir core analysis, both of the routine and advanced nature, we investigate the porosity and permeability of the rock to determine the reservoir storage capacity and the ability of the fluids to flow through the rock. These measurements are used to determine how much oil and gas are present in a reservoir and the rates at which the oil and gas can be produced.
Tomographic imaging technology is combined with special core analysis and enhanced oil recovery laboratory tests. This allows us to gain deeper insight and visualization into what is occurring during laboratory experiments in a non-invasive manner, even at high temperatures and pressures.
Our experimental research and testing hall provides the department’s scientists with a large laboratory for research in well testing and geophysics. It includes advanced flow loop rigs, a well testing rig with 100 m depth and a tank for seismic tests and simulations.
The departments facilities include a workshop for mecanical engineering, a workshop for electrical engineering and a workshop for mecatronics. Here students and scientist get help to make their ideas reality.
