Researchers in the Corrosion and Foam Stability Lab in the Harold Vance Department of Petroleum Engineering at Texas A&M University study the corrosive effects of chemicals and other substances on developed formations and drilling equipment, and seeks ways to mitigate and prevent it.

This laboratory also houses equipment for the study of foam stability to develop foams that can be used as drilling and fracturing fluids, as well as deliver proppants, corrosion inhibitors, and other useful liquids and particles to the substrate.
