Development of petrophysical measurements and the related instruments

The Institute specializes in measuring and determining petrophysical parameters crucial for the exploration, resource estimation, and cultivation of hydrocarbon fields and water bodies. This involves investigating physical and chemical parameters catering to the unique needs of the construction and chemical industry.


  • Direct determination of parameters on drilling core samples
  • Artificially consolidated porous sample body manufacturing for special needs
  • Analysis of storage, conductive, insulating, physical, mechanical, and rheological properties
  • Laboratory and desired pT condition analysis

RESEARCH EXPERIENCE: Decades-long experience in recovery factor enhancement, storage protection, and formation treatment. Successful experiments include fluid transport processes’ influence on core samples from Hungary and abroad, and artificially consolidated rock samples. Measurements involve modeling hydrocarbon migration, saturation equilibrium states, and pressure conditions during and after EOR/EGR treatment.


  • RCA & SCA (Routine and Special Core Analysis)
  • CFA (Core Flooding Analysis)
  • EOR (Enhanced Oil Recovery)
  • EGR (Enhanced Gas Recovery)

SERVICES: Prototype measurement devices, comprehensive development of laboratory equipment, and implementation of measurement/experiment processes. Activities include modeling, device design, programming, construction, assembly, and interpretation of results following industrial protocols for quality and data security.
