International Centre for Carbonate Reservoirs

ICCR is a strategic research alliance between the Institute of Petroleum Engineering at Heriot-Watt University and the School of Geosciences at the University of Edinburgh, with close links to academic institutions in Brazil. Its aim is to combine carbonate reservoir geology with reservoir engineering to understand evolution of porosity, permeability, and multi-phase flow properties in (deforming) carbonates to improve the prediction their 3D distributions and calibrate dynamic models more robustly.

ICCR is jointly directed by Prof Sebastian Geiger and Prof Rachel Wood but builds on the extensive experience in reservoir geoscience, engineering, and geophysics at Heriot-Watt University and the University of Edinburgh.
