IFE Geochemistry Laboratory
Our mission: Squeeze more data out of your samples for more informed decisions.
The geochemistry laboratory at IFE is equipped with a wide range of high-precision analytical instruments to measure stable and radiogenic isotope ratios and the composition of elements and organic compounds in geological, biological, gas and water samples. We can handle both routine and custom analyses with complex matrices as either a commercial service or partnership in research projects. Our multi-disciplinary team delivers within deadlines and client specifications analytical results and interpretation reports.
We work on a wide range of project related to exploration and production of hydrocarbons, carbon storage, monitoring pollution and fluid flow in landfills, controlling the quality of biogas and hydrogen in processing plants, refuelling stations and fingerprinting the source of contaminants. IFE’s clients and research partners include academia, other research institutes, onshore and offshore industry, government authorities and private individuals.
The IFE Geochemistry Laboratory is part of the ECCSEL, the European infrastructure for accelerating technologies of carbon capture and storage. We are also partnering in two Norwegian Research-Based Centers for Innovation (SFI) on the Subsurface Well Integrity, Plugging and Abandonment (SWIPA) and on the Rescue of Earth Materials and Waste in the Circular Economy (EarthresQue).
