Micromeritics Acquires PoroTechnology
Micromeritics Instrument Corp. recently announced it has completed its acquisition of PoroTechnology, a Texas-based company that provides mercury injection capillary pressure (MICP) rock property data to the U.S. and international oil and gas industry. PoroTechnology will reportedly operate as a business unit of Micromeritics and use the analytical assets of Micromeritics Analytical Services (MAS).
John Neasham, Ph.D., established PoroTechnology in 1995 and has, for 18 years, conducted MICP analysis and evaluation of some 25,000 samples representing a range of reservoir and seal rock types. As a geologist, Neasham’s 43 years of experience in the oil and gas industry has enabled him to provide clients with important geological and petrophysical rock property data using customized MICP analytical protocols and generated data evaluation. Neasham will continue as a consultant, acting in both an advisory role and with direct involvement in MAS MICP services, to include data reports provided to clients.
