TCU Shale Core Facility Mission Statement: To provide a professional partnership between students, faculty, and leaders in the energy industry through cooperation, mentorship, research, and education. DISCLAIMER: TCU Energy Institute retains no ownership over material, all core is confidential.
About us: The TCU Shale Core Facility began as an idea from our TCU Energy Institute’s Advisory Board and various faculty. In 2008, plans came together to have a facility to store Barnett Shale core. EOG Resources and Matador Resources were the first to deposit pallets of core. In 2010, a generous donation from Pioneer Natural Resources provided offices and a climate-controlled viewing area. Over the next five years, the 9,000 square foot facility became home to thousands of feet of core from all over the region. Today we have a new 15,000 square foot location with additional storage, viewing and classroom space. The Core Lab, as it is widely known, is open for private viewings, tours, and research on the geology, sedimentology, petrophysics and geochemistry of the core samples.
