Core sample characterisation

Paul Boughton
The Colombian government’s National Hydrocarbons Agency (ANH) gas announced the award of a major contract for the characterisation of shale core samples, which will use a significant number of ZEISS electron microscopes for high resolution, three dimensional imaging of subsoil organic content.

The images generated by these electron microscopes will be analysed using technology from Ingrain to better rock properties and resource locations.  

The ANH is responsible for promoting the sustainable development of the country’s hydrocarbon resources through an integral management approach that harmonizes the interests of the society, country and the companies of the sector.

Carl Zeiss and Ingrain will provide core characterisation for the ANH to gain critical knowledge of select regions of the Colombian subsoil and its potential for hydrocarbon extraction.
