Core data gives you an accurate understanding of the unique characteristics of your reservoir. But we know that timing is everything when it comes to getting the most from this data. Our in-house analytical lab capabilities allow us to control the quality, timing and reporting of evaluations. This means you get the data you need to make the best decisions for your well, often while the rig is still on-site. These valuable insights, delivered when you need them, allow you to make strategic decisions for enhanced resource recovery. Our core analysis includes:

Computed Tomography (CT) Scanner

  • Identify fractures, vugs and internal structure properties present in a core sample
  • Define density, pore-space and mineralogical alterations
  • Provide real-time monitoring of fluid flow and interaction with rock materials for reservoir modeling
  • Model the effects of acidization in carbonate reservoirs

Core Description

  • Identify visible rock composition, texture, structures, fractures, fossils and trace fossils
  • Build depositional and stratigraphic models

Core Gamma

  • Measure natural gamma ray from core, including thorium 232, uranium 238 and potassium 40
  • Correlate data with spectral gamma ray log of wireline logs to determine radioactive materials

Porosity and Permeability Profiling

  • Thin section and Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) analysis 
  • Mercury Intrusion Capillary Pressure (MICP)
  • Porosity at effective stress conditions
  • Porosity, unconfined
  • Pulse Decay Permeability (PDP) at effective stress conditions
    • Measured to gas and liquids
  • Matrix permeability, unconfined
  • Steady state permeability under confined conditions
