HOUSTON – Schlumberger has opened its new Houston Geoengineering Laboratory, a state-of-the-art, 30,000-sq ft (2,787-sq m) facility that will provide reservoir core analysis services for the oil and gas industry.

The new Houston facility features a conventional core analysis laboratory for the measurement of porosity, saturation, and permeability. It also houses a special core analysis laboratory for performing tests of a capillary pressure, relative permeability, electrical properties, nuclear magnetic resonance, enhanced oil recovery evaluations and more.

Sameh Hanna, president, Schlumberger Testing Services, said:  “As clients explore more complex reservoirs, they are demanding improved reservoir characterization, and the need for core analysis has grown dramatically. In the laboratory, we are focusing on the full life of the reservoir and offering the latest technology to help our clients improve hydrocarbon recovery and maximize production.”
