  • Research Project of BG Brazil and UFRGS ...

The project is named "Stratigraphical-Sedimentogical-Petrological Integrated Study of Rift Section of Santos and Campos Basins, in the east of Brazil”. The solution integrates Petroledge and RockViewer systems of Endeeper with the Axio Imager A2 Pol microscope, equipped with AxioCam MRc scientific camera and ZEN Lite 2011 system from Carl Zeiss.

Geologists will perform the systematic acquisition and management of petrographic data using the Server version of Petroledge and RockViewer and Carl Zeiss equipments. The great advantage of this solution is that all data generated at different workstations are stored directly on the central server of the research project, making easier the exchange of information among researchers, ensuring data security and accelerating the data processing and the integrated interpretation.

Eduardo Castro, business developer of Endeeper, commented: ""We are very pleased to have our products chosen for use in a research project important for the university-enterprise interaction and for the oil exploration in Brazil. This is the result of permanent investment from Endeeper in offering innovative and efficient solutions for the oil and mining markets.""
