Routine Rock Analysis is the starting point for the wide range of studies conducted
at Stim-Lab. The processes are started by the following services:
Core Gamma (total and spectral) Accurate placement of the cored
section within the well bore is only possible with a high quality gamma measured
in the laboratory. The latest technology for measurement of natural gamma radiation,
both total and spectral, is available to the client through the technicians at Core
Slabbing Much of the knowledge to be gained from core recovered
in a particular reservoir is gained through a detailed study of depositional environment.
This may be done while looking at the core directly or with digital images. Most
geologists prefer a slabbed surface for a careful, detailed examination of the core.
Photography also is normally done after the core has been slabbed. The rock type
and condition will determine the proper saw and blade selection. The fluid used
as a coolant and lubricant is chosen to enhance cutting efficiency and reduce damage
to the core.
