The laboratory has an extensive collection of experimental set-ups for rock, soils and reservoir analysis. The different research and educational questions of the Geoscience and Engineering Department determine the variety of set-up facilities in the laboratory. In addition, the equipment is also used by external clients and partners, partly as 3rd stream research and partly as partners in large programs.

Our technicians collaborate with the scientific staff on a peer basis during design and manufacturing to construct the best workable set-up. They are integrated and clustered into expertise groups built around specific infrastructure.

The expertise groups and examples of the instruments:


Rock mechanic, acoustic- and other (geo/petro)physical methods

Optics, CT X-ray and Imaging-tools

Geo-engineering equipment and set-ups
