A fine-grained type of sedimentary rock, shale is a leading source rock for some of the most important oil and natural gas deposits in the world. Recent drilling and hydraulic fracturing techniques have made it possible to extract oil and gas deposits that previously remained trapped inside shale rock. As a result, massive natural gas fields can now be developed. 

Kocurek Industries offers state-of-the-art shale testing services that include the ability to evaluate hydraulic properties of shale, including porosity and permeability that can reflect the ability of the shale to hold and transmit fluids. 

We can supply shale cores upon request. Readily available varieties of Mancos Shale. Please contact us for additional details.
