The PMRE maintains two well equipped laboratories- 1) Analytical lab and 2) Petrophysical lab. These are primarily for graduate studies and advanced research. The students have opportunity to work with reservoir rock and fluid samples using ASTM and GPA standard equipment and test procedures. In addition, testing, training and consultation services are provided to companies involved in the petroleum, minerals and energy sector of Bangladesh using these laboratories. The labs were originally sponsored by the University of Alberta, Canada. The analytical lab hosts the only PVT apparatus in the country.
Following is a short list of the equipment in these labs:
