"We have to use technology to understand and produce our reservoirs effectively. In doing so we can extend the life of our resources, improve our economic base and manage our resources in an environmentally responsible way."
Read the August 2014 letter to Sponsors.

The Reservoir Characterization Project (RCP) at the Colorado School of Mines is an industry-funded academic consortium with a primary focus on applied research and knowledge dissemination in integrated reservoir characterization. RCP’s unique research model emphasizes a multidisciplinary, collaborative team approach for practical research and preparation of graduate students. RCP works closely with industry partners to explore new technologies and workflows such as time-lapse and multicomponent seismic technology, incorporating all geoscience and engineering data to solve complex reservoir challenges and gain improvements in reservoir performance prediction and development optimization.
