International Centre for Carbonate Reservoirs

Organization profile

Organisation profile

ICCR is part of the ECOSSE Joint Research Initiative in Edinburgh where there is significant expertise across geoscience and engineering to tackle the complex issues of improved hydrocarbon recovery from carbonates. It is a large industry-funded programme, which is also supported by a growing network of research partners around the globe with expertise in carbonates. The ICCR sponsorship includes membership of Joint industry partnerships in carbonate themes, support of studentships, workshops, etc. There is scope for each sponsor to blend technical expertise with strategic staff development and regional strengthen of the research and technical base in this important area.
