Look What’s New in Research at EGI


Designed collaboratively between sponsoring companies and EGI scientists, sponsorship of current EGI Research Projects provides Sponsors with the unique opportunity to shape the project and gain independent insights, interpretations, and evaluations of company-specific questions.

All active projects are open for sponsorship from their launch throughout the two-year period of confidentiality and include both Regional and Thematic studies. Recently Released projects are available to all EGI members for download from EGIconnect.

EGI works to ensure our members have the highest level of access to over $800 million worth of scientific research.  Membership benefits include Cost-Shared Projects, Technical Conferences & Meetings, EGIconnect Online Global Database, Education, Training & Certifications, Dedicated Peer Assists, and Sole-Sponsored Projects.

Research Services

EGI provides Research Services in conjunction with its Geoscience and Engineering related projects. EGI in combination with the University of Utah Nanofab facility has the most densely concentrated high technology equipment in the United States capable of source rock and high-resolution reservoir characterization. The Utah Nanofab excels in such areas as fast nanometer scale elemental mapping and multiscale correlative microscopy (comprehensive suite of services from Core through Pore™ scales). The ability to rapidly map elemental constituents allows the analysis of fragile samples and those with volatile components, which are often encountered in unconventional reservoirs.
