Geomechanical Reservoir Experimental Facility

  • Conventional and high-temperature/high-pressure testing systems including triaxial, direct shear, ring shear, and oedometer

  • Specialized reservoir geomechanical systems such as stress-strain dependent permeability, capillary pressure/imbibition, relative permeability, and adsorption

  • Unique testing environments including: mini-triaxial cells with specimens as small as 5mm in diameter and a custom triaxial cell for seismic frequency rock physics testing
