Experimentation services

Strengthened by our technical capabilities, we offer high-quality, differentiated and specialized experimentation services that yield reliable results.


They cover the following areas of knowledge:

Diverse chromatographic and fractionating techniques that include chromatography of gases (GC), liquids (HPLC, GPC, preparative), combined techniques, selective detection, multidimensional (GCxGC), solid phase extraction, and more.

Both for Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluids. Featured techniques include dynamic, rotational or stationary, micro-rheology, microfluidic as well as the use of rheometers (stress-control or strain-control, capillary extrusion), high pressure rheometers, dynamic mechanical thermal analysis (DMTA), drilling oil characterization equipment, viscometers (capillary kinematic, Brookfield, Haake, among others), four-ball wear tests, shear tests, HFRR friction and wear tests, MTM machines, and more, including studies on various harshness, temperature, and pressure conditions.

Applied to different compounds (fuel, lubricant, polymer compounds, and in general any formulation of oil products). Technique examples: thermogravimetric (TGA), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), freezing point (FP), cloud point (CP), cold filter plugging point (CFPP), pour point (PP), volatility (vapor pressure), and stickiness analyses; Vicat, Mettler, and ring and ball softening point methods; and ageing, global visible light transmission, opacity, clarity, density, porosity, permeability, capillary pressure, degree of cross-link, and particle shape studies, among others

Collection of organic and organometallic molecules and macromolecules through chemical reactions.

Different techniques for studying both static and dynamic mechanical properties of a material (rock, polymer, metal, compound or catalyst material, among others). Other techniques include traction/compression, bending, torsion, shear, hardness, impact resistance, fracture resistance, peeling, resilience, fatigue, and creep resistance, among others.

This includes atomic spectrometry (optic ICP, ICP-mass, and X-ray fluorescence), specific elemental analysis, potentiometric titration, isotopic analysis, and X-ray diffraction (XRD); electric and electrochemical techniques (potentiometric and volumetric titration, ion chromatography, and resistivity); as well as physico-chemical preparation techniques for samples such as digestion/mineralization techniques and SARA (or SAR) analysis of crude oils.

Techniques found within the Spectrometry category include Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR, both high resolution and low field or TD-NMR), infrared and Raman spectroscopy, ultraviolet-visible spectroscopy, and mass spectrometry (MS).

Techniques found within the category of solid characterization include image capture, processing, and characterization. The acquisition of 2D and 3D data in techniques like scanning electron microscopy (SEM, EDS-SEM, FIB-SEM, and cathodoluminescence), optical microscopy (conventional, cathodoluminescence, 3D, spectrophotometric, microthermometry), fluorescence microscopy (confocal laser scanning and optical), X-ray diffraction, and X-ray tomography (at different scales).

Experimental characterization of the composition and behavior of reservoir fluid in relation to the dynamics of phase changes (solid-liquid-gas), EOR, and chemical impact on fluid performance to feed reservoir, production, and installation simulators with fluid behavior models.
