RCP is an independently funded geophysical research consortium

dedicated to the study of integrated reservoir characterization

WelcomE

a robust research portfolio allowing for in-depth R&D combined with active field applications of this research.

RCP’s research highlights the value of applied research in predicting reservoir performance and enhancing field development strategies with a focus on integrated reservoir characterization. Our research spans geophysics, geology, petrophysics and petroleum engineering, with seismic methods as a foundation of our applied studies.

Founded in 1983 as an independently-sponsored research consortium, RCP is widely recognized as an early leader in advancing research of key technologies for 4D multi-component seismic applications. RCP’s unique model emphasizes a multidisciplinary team approach for practical research, collaborating as an academic consortium with industry partners and developing graduates with a broad background of research experience and knowledge.

Applied research field projects cover a variety of geologic setting including conventional and unconventional reservoirs in both onshore and offshore environments. RCP distinguishes its R&D projects by blending R&D results directly into active field projects to challenge and improve the derived methods and algorithms in real world situations. By combining leading-edge technology R&D with active field projects.

RCP is part of the Department of Geophysics at Colorado School of Mines, a public research university dedicated to engineering and applied sciences in Golden, Colorado.
