Core Analysis – Routine Core Analysis and Special Core Analysis

The objective of Core Analysis is to measure core and fluid parameters to assist in efficient recovery of hydrocarbons. The goal is to reduce the uncertainty in reservoir evaluation by providing reservoir data that is representative of the reservoir at in-situ conditions.
