Formation evaluation research understands and characterizes the physical properties of reservoir rocks and distribution of fluids and pores within them. We investigate these properties through a variety of computational, laboratory, and downhole techniques that combine fundamental physics and chemistry with petrophysical principles and measurement technology.
