Petroleum Engineering Department provides key laboratory data for reservoir optimization. It provides technical consultation studies services relating to formation evaluation, reservoir characterization, reservoir simulation and well performance evaluation.

In our Reservoir Laboratories, we are committed to offer our client in-depth understanding of their perspective reservoir properties and behavior. The holistic approach we adopt for rock and fluids analysis supports our clients in their decision making.

To increase the effectiveness of our approach, we continuously making efforts to improve our services and processes. Thus, we always endeavor to equip/ add our fully skilled technicians and highly qualified experts with the state of the art equipment and tools to ensure that our clients get the highest degree of data accuracy and reliability.

Petroleum engineering department consists of three main sections: reservoir rock section, reservoir fluid section and drilling fluids and formation damage section which provide consulting and conducting studies and researches related to:

  • Routine and Special core analysis Studies.
  • PVT and EOR Studies.
  • Drilling Fluids and Formation Damage Studies.
  • Rock Mechanics Studies
  • Working with and providing support to others LPI technical departments to grant solutions of oil industry problems.
  • Working with well-known international and national firms, universities and institutes through Participate in joint venture studies to gain the experience, knowledge and transfers the technologies.
