COPPE also has 116 modern laboratories, which together constitute the country’s largest engineering laboratory complex.

Ikon Science provides industry leadership in the prediction of reservoir properties, pressures and fluids. The company’s RokDoc® software, quantitative interpretation and geopressure services leverage the power of rock physics to integrate well, geopressure and seismic data to understand the subsurface.
