The 32,000-square-foot facility is the newest addition to the Schlumberger global network of reservoir laboratories. The laboratory offers an integrated suite of petrophysical and geomechanical services to help customers improve hydrocarbon recovery and maximize production throughout the life of their reservoirs.
The laboratory in Chengdu is designed to provide a complete suite of services from field core acquisition to laboratory measurements. Laboratory personnel and petrotechnical experts work in close collaboration with domain experts to deliver a seamless solution from initial data gathering through sample selection, rock testing, model calibration and interpretation.
“We are pleased to be opening the Schlumberger Reservoir Laboratory in Chengdu to support the expanding exploration activity in unconventional shale plays in China,” said Cheng Xu, president, Schlumberger China. “The establishment of the Schlumberger Reservoir Laboratory further supports our long-term commitment to our customers in China.”
