Petrophysics is the study of physical and chemical rock properties and their interactions with fluids. A major application of petrophysics is in studying reservoirs for the hydrocarbon industry. Petrophysicists are employed to help reservoir engineers and geoscientists understand the rock properties of the reservoir, particularly how pores in the subsurface are interconnected, controlling the accumulation and migration of hydrocarbons. While most petrophysicists work in the hydrocarbon industry, some also work in the mining and water resource industries.

Faculty: Fabio Ferri, Idael Blanco.
