Routine Core Analysis (RCAL)

Routine Core Analysis instruments are used to measure the properties of rock samples. The reservoir properties and accurate input data are provide for a geological model.

Core gamma, porosity, permeability and fluid saturation are measured as well as lithology and other parameters. Besides, imaging and preservation of cores are done in MAPSA‘s RCAL laboratory.
