The Electrical Properties System was developed to fill the need for measurement of critical reservoir properties at elevated temperatures. This multifunction system provides both Co/Cw measurements used for the determination of Qv, which allows for the interpretation of low resistivity pay in shaly sands, and I/Sw measurements used for the interpretation of resistivity logs to determine actual reservoir saturations. Capillary pressure curves are also generated during I/Sw testing.

Metarock Laboratories works closely with each client to design and deliver an Electrical Properties Measurement System solution that ensures their specific testing needs are met.
