organization profile

The Interdisciplinary Center for Integrative Petroleum Research (CIPR) is the research arm of the College of Petroleum Engineering & Geosciences (CPG) at KFUPM. It embodies a balancing shift towards fundamental research and research-intensive education away from the historical dominance of applied and consultancy service research. The CIPR promotes a resource-based research model with 8 core programs that underpin its mission. These are: Oilfield Chemistry, Colloids and Interface Science, Rock Science, Multi-Scale Multi-Physics Modeling, Geosystems, Rock Mechanics, Geophysics, and Large Data Analytics.
