Special Core Analysis (SCAL) Laboratory
PERM Inc.’s Special Core Analysis (SCAL) Laboratory is an Advanced Laboratory conducting Specialized Core Analysis Laboratory Experiments for the Oil & Gas Industry.
PERM Inc.’s 25,000 sq. ft. Special Core Analysis Laboratory is located in beautiful Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
Our team, headed by Dr. Apostolos Kantzas, routinely combines tomographic imaging and NMR technology with special core analysis and enhanced oil recovery laboratory tests. This allows us to gain deeper insight and visualization into what is occurring during laboratory experiments in a non-invasive manner, even at high temperatures and pressures.
PERM Inc. is one of the foremost experts in the world when it comes to characterizing unconventional reservoirs with advanced SCAL tests in full diameter core at reservoir conditions.
Special Core Analysis Overview
PERM has spent over twenty years developing tools and techniques that are proprietary IP for characterizing conventional and unconventional core. We are very proud of our accomplishments in these areas and we continue to conduct research to allow us to tackle some very challenging issues and bring continuous improvements to the industry.
