Carl Zeiss and Ingrain to provide core characterization for Colombian hydrocarbon extraction
BOGOTA, Colombia -- The National Hydrocarbons Agency (ANH) of Colombia has contracted with Zeiss Electronic Microscopes to provided hydrocarbon mapping for the extraction of oil and natural gas. Ingrain will assist with core analysis.
Zeiss electron microscopes and associated technology have been selected as a key component in this resource identification project for the characterization of shale core samples. The project will use a significant number of electron microscopes for high-resolution, 3D imaging of subsoil organic content. The images generated by these electron microscopes will be analyzed using technology from Ingrain to describe rock properties and identify resource locations.
