Our Wellsite services include the handling and processing of core (formation) and
reservoir fluid samples at the wellsite. These services include the receiving and
preparation of the samples for shipment and basic analytical services to provide
real time data sets at the wellsite.
The award winning Iron CoreHand™ is a 100-percent self-contained, pneumatic-powered lifting system that completely eliminates the need for manual
handling of the core tubes by personnel. Iron CoreHand™ is a technological achievement that significantly enhances safety to individuals
while reducing risk to core integrity.
The POOH is a series of simulation models used to optimize the rate at which the cores are retrieved
from the wellbore. Cores and the associated fluids within the core can be damaged if they are
retrieved too rapidly. These models provide a conservative rate schedule to ensure quality core
are received for evaluation.
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.
Mud tracing services are used to provide a method to determine the amount of invasion into a core during
the coring operation. This evaluation is made by tracing the mud system with Tritium (Invasion Profiler
service) Deuterium Oxide, or Salts/Nitrates. The amount of "tracer" can then be measured in the core and
the water saturation corrected for the invaded water.
Core stabilization is required to protect and stabilize the core within the liner in which they recovered.
Without stabilization core can be damaged during routine handling and transportation from the field to the
laboratory facilities. We offer a full range of services to stabilize conventional cores within the core
barrel liner that are collected in. The type of stabilization method is designed to match the formation
type and the core conditions.
Transportation of core material from the field to the laboratory is the final component in the collection of
cores to ensure undamaged quality core arrive for analysis.
