Kocurek Industries INC. - Research Cores
Kocurek Industries, Inc. / Hard Rock Division specializes in providing precision stone cutting for the oil and gas research industry. We are based in Caldwell, Texas and provide core samples that are used by major oil firms, universities, and research labs to gain a better understanding of oil and gas reservoirs around the world.
Currently, core samples serve as some of the most valuable tools for reservoir analysis. Reservoir core analysis is conducted on the permeability and porosity of various types of rock formations to determine the ability of fluids to flow through the rocks and reservoir storage capacity. Our cutting-edge services and technologies make it possible to produce reservoir data that can be utilized to develop more efficient reservoir production programs. The measurements we produce can be used to make evaluations regarding the amount of oil and gas that may be present in a reservoir as well as the rates at which hydrocarbons can be produced. We take pride in supplying our customers with only the highest quality products at competitive prices.
Our wide array of services includes cutting carbonate and sandstone core samples. Along with custom stone cutting samples provided by the customer, we also stock a variety of different types of stones quarried from locations around the world.
