Facilities

The staff
The core-laboratory is operated by skilled petroleum engineers and physicists, capable of managing projects of any complexity, operating state-of the-art SCAL equipment, as well as making the associated analysis of data. In addition, IRIS has more than fifteen years of experience in combining experiments with simulation for design of experiments, history matching of core analysis data, and of formalized quality control.

Facilities
Our SCAL-laboratory comprises the most advanced equipment in the world. Through a wide range of services it often acts as the stepping stone for new technology to the oil field industry.
