Welliste Characterization is a set of analytical series available at the wellsite
to generate "early time" data to aid in initial evaluation of the core and the formation
properties. This is especially important when the well is in a remote location or
when "core again" decisions need to be made at the wellsite or when long transportation
times of the core are encountered.
This gamma unit is API calibrated and can measure both Total and Spectral gamma
responses. The data can be used to make "core again" decisions and aid in the understanding
of reservoir quality. The service can also be configured to determine the quality
of the core while in the liner.
Since the cores may be retained in the disposable liner and cannot be viewed early
information can be of value. Photographs of the end-cut of the cores can prove valuable
in understanding the condition of the core material and an early indication of the
reservoir quality. Digital images can be collected in natural light or under UV
light to document hydrocarbon shows.
End chips of the core segments can be collected and forwarded to the lab ahead of
the core. A full range of analytical services can be performed to provide early
time data to determine reservoir quality, mineralogy and quantity of the fluid saturations
present in the core. This data can be of value when cores are taken in remote locations
and therefore will take time to transport to the lab for evaluation.
We provide collection and preservation of representative Whole Core samples for
advanced analytical services. Wellsite preservation insures the wettability and
initial fluid saturation of the rock are preserved for both routine and special
cores analysis testing. We have multiple methods to use dependent on the formation
and fluid types encountered.
We can provide the acquisition of plugs at the wellsite for analysis of the. These
samples can be acquired at the wellsite and transported to a lab for routine and
special core analysis services. This data can be of value when cores are taken in
remote locations and therefore will take time to transport to the lab for evaluation.
We also offer routine and some specialized analytical procedures be run at the remote
location in portable labs.
