Argile Analytica is a Canadian company offering research and laboratory services for the oil and gas industry. We have experienced researchers from several scientific disciplines including:
- .Aqueous Chemistry
to evaluate various challenges related to the petroleum industry and provide multi-discipline approaches.
The founders have over 50 years of experience in establishing and managing the laboratories. We undertake research and testing projects to provide better insight to the problems and possible solutions.
Our laboratory is well-equipped for characterization of minerals, fluid phases and their interactions. We can also offer pilot plant operations with field laboratory services as well as short and medium term technical staffing.
The compnay's business philosophy is to provide high quality technical support, maximize research credits for the clients and suggest cost-cutting measures.
Our detailed thin section reports incorporate the mineralogy of framework grains, grain sorting, grain size distribution, rock type (Folk and/or Dunham Classification), cements and/or authigenic minerals (diagenesis), reservoir characterization (porosity types and porosity-permeability relationship), reservoir facies identification and formation damage issues. In addition, X-Ray Diffraction analyses (to identify mineralogy and clay minerals for its sensitivity),
Scanning Electron Microscopy (identifies mineral morphology and mode of occurrence within the pore system), Back-Scattered SEM (image analyses software is used to identify effective Vs non-effective porosity) and Mercury Injection Capillary Pressure (pore throat size distribution) are also incorporated within the reports for regional sedimentological studies.
Brief descriptions can also be provided on request to minimize the cost.
