Briefcase

Our geological labs have significant experience when it comes to horizontal cuttings profiling, a cost-effective means of providing baseline data for any formation being drilled. Drill cutting analysis gives you a detailed understanding of the geological composition of your target zones, and helps to optimize horizontal completions.

Analyses

  • Adsorption isotherms
  • Liquids compositions (S1 Analysis)
  • Gas composition
  • Fluid sensitivity
  • TOC and Tmax analysis
  • Thin section and Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM)
  • Mineralogy by x-ray diffraction
  • X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) analysis

Advantages

  • Sample collection is done during drilling and does not affect operations
  • Additional personnel is not required on-site; bulk samples can be collected by the rig staff and handled by the wellsite geologist
  • Cost-effective means of gathering textural, petrographic, mineralogical and geochemical data
