Project: Microbial colonisation of porous sedimentary rocks for their management of petrophysical properties.

2017-10-01 – 2021-09-30


Bacteria inhabit the pores of natural rocks. This project aims to define the interaction of the location, growth and activity of biofilms and the petrophysical properties of rocks at pore scales and vice versa. This will allow a determination of the precise mechanisms, the role of the organisms and the link between microbial colonization and petrophysical properties inside sedimentary rocks.
