Details For Our Sandstone

Kocurek Industries provides a variety of core samples utilizing various types of rock formations, including sandstone. Sandstone is considered a classic sedimentary rock primarily comprised of quartz, silica and sand-sized minerals. Developing a comprehensive understanding of the various properties of sandstone is essential in determining rock-fluid interactions. The petroleum industry makes use of a variety of different types of sandstone rocks for standard porous laboratory experiments. The data that is obtained from such tests can then be compared to similar experimental data conducted through the use of reservoir cores.
