The Reservoir Rock Section: 

The Reservoir Rock Section is build to determine the petrophysical properties of reservoir rocks and basic data necessary for exploration and petroleum engineering work. There are two types of investigations that can be performed in the reservoir rock section:-

 

 

Conventional Core Analysis

\"\\"\\\\"\\\\\\\\"\\\\\\\\"\\\\"\\"\"

 Sample Preparation 

  •  Drilling and cutting (plugs or whole sample)
  • Samples numbering, cleaning with solvent and drying using oven 

 Full diameter core analysis

  •  Porosity and grain density
  • Horizontal air permeability Kmax, 90 degrees
  • Vertical air permeability

 Plug sample core analysis

  •  Porosity and grain density
  • Horizontal air permeability
  • Vertical air permeability
  • Horizontal and vertical air permeability including Klinkenberg corrections
  • Fluid saturation by Dean Stark or by Retort method
  • Digital probe parameter to measure permeability on full diameter of slabbed core 

 

 

Special Core Analysis 

  •  Mercury injection capillary pressure (multi points)

  • Rock compressibility 

 

Formation Damage Tests:

\"\\"\\\\"\\\\\\\\"\\\\\\\\"\\\\"\\"\"

Newly introduced laboratory and still under construction, hopefully in near future we will finish setting up this lab. with the assistance of a specialized and experienced company in this area in order to operate and maintain the equipment and get some experience to perform tests and work on projects in the area of formation damage.

  • Separation tests at specified separator conditions
  • Viscosity test at reservoir conditions 

 Gas Condensate PVT Studies includes: 

  •  Validation of fluid samples
  • Constant Composition Expansion
  • Constant Volume depletion study 

Miscibility Studies 

 Determination of minimum miscibility pressure (MMP) of a reservoir fluid with a selected injection gas, and also the minimum miscibility composition (MMC) 

 Swelling Tests: (Single contact gas injection) 

Determination of mixture saturation pressure and volume after each addition of the gas

Drilling Fluids and Rock Mechanics Section: 

\"\\"\\\\"\\\\\\\\"\\\\\\\\"\\\\"\\"\"
