Petrophysics research is related to the study of flow and transport in rocks and their physical and chemical properties. Our facilities drive research related to the development of subsurface engineering technologies that are critical for the energy transition and future demands for energy and minerals. 

Work conducted in the Petrophysics Laboratory is related to our geoenergy research flagship. We are equipped with high-pressure and high-temperature experimental systems to measure petrophysical properties at reservoir conditions. Other bespoke experimental systems are common for many of our industry and government funded projects including fluid equipment coupled to high-resolution X-ray computed microtomography imaging.
