Petrophysics and Rock-physics

The Physical sediment laboratory is divided into the sediment laboratory and the preparation laboratory.

The preparation laboratory produces covered and polished thin sections; polished samples; cutting, sawing and plugging all solids including sediments and rocks; maintenance of microscopes.

The sediment laboratory is equipped with:

  • He-porosimeter
  • Gas permeameter for 1 inch plugs
  • Surface Area Analyser- BET
  • X-ray powder diffraction analysis
  • P-wave velocity
  • Equipment for P- and S-wave velocity and electric resistivity (plug samples)
  • Centrifuge
  • Sieving analysis of sediments
  • Jaw crusher
  • Disc mill
  • Vibratory disc mill
  • Access to sedigraph and helium gas Pycnometer.
