nuclear magnetic resonance technology

Chevron continues applying Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) technology to oilfield applications.  Our researchers are working to develop a state-of-the-art, integrated high-temperature, high-pressure and multiphase NMR laboratory in Houston, Texas. The lab will enable the development of innovative NMR technologies to acquire petrophysical data not previously available. These technologies replicate downhole flow conditions to characterize the reservoir and enhance well productivity in our most challenging tight and heavy oil assets. Additional efforts are underway to make NMR technology portable for field applications.
