Midland Core Research Center

The Midland Core Research Center (MCRC) contains nearly 400,000 boxes of core and cuttings available for public viewing and research. Midland, Austin, and Houston core facilities have combined holdings of nearly 2 million boxes of geologic material.

Searchable Database
The Integrated Core and Log Database (IGOR) is a searchable database for all CRC core and well cutting holdings. Some Austin and Midland data are not currently included in IGOR; please contact Nathan Ivicic (512-471-0402) if you have any questions regarding this.

Resources and Services
Public facilities include core examination layout rooms and processing rooms for slabbing core. Nominal fees are charged to rent table space and to view core. Other services available upon request. Comprehensive Austin and Midland CRC inventories are available at no cost in Excel spreadsheet format (contact Nathan Ivicic).
