Welcome to the Institute of Petroleum Research 

The Institute of Petroleum Research (IPR) was founded in January 2019 and is the newest Institute of the Foundation for Research and Technology - Hellas (FORTH). At a time of energy transition towards cleaner forms of energy production, the Institute of Petroleum Research is aiming to support and actively shape the conditions for the exploitation of energy resources and their optimal and sustainable environmental management.

Research Topics

Exploration for Oil and Gas is a multidisciplinary project. It integrates knowledge of a great variety of geosciences such as sedimentology, structural geology, petrography, biostratigraphy, geochemistry, geophysics, well-logging, basin analysis and palaeogeography-climatology among others.

Activities related to Drilling, Reservoir and Production Engineering aspects of Hydrocarbons, CCUS and deep high enthalpy Geothermy such as testing, logging, monitoring and simulation of E&P relevant wells and fields. 

The modeling of oil spill fate and transport. The offshore safety achieved with bioremediation technologies, decontamination & monitoring. Every aspect relevant to E&P such as SEIA, BSR, EAP, ESIA, EIA and HSE awareness and local content support.

The Institute (IPR) recognizes the last decades’ global shift of the climate change trend. In view of that, IPR is committed to contribute with all its efforts to a sustainable exploration and exploitation of our energy sources.
