Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Laboratory

PERM Inc.’s Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Laboratory focuses on Customized Special Core Analysis and Enhanced Oil Recovery Laboratory Experiments for the Oil & Gas Industry.  NMR Technology is a Non-Invasive method for acquiring data.

NMR Experts

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 applying NMR technology to special core analysis, enhanced oil recovery, and characterizing unconventional reservoirs. We have hundreds of publications, and we can do tests at reservoir conditions in an NMR.
