Surface Processing and Handling

High quality surface procedures are critical for providing core data that can prevent mechanical damage or any other alteration to the rock. Special inner barrel separation techniques and lay down procedures prevent torsional stress, bending and fracturing. Depending on the scope of surface processing and handling requirements, the core can be cut into one meter or three foot sections, boxed up and made ready for transportation. Alternatively, a number of various services can be performed at the wellsite by our highly skilled wellsite core processing professionals. These services include surface gamma logging, stabilization and preservation with several options to choose from, core plugging, and wellsite structural modeling. All these services aide in delivering the highest core quality to help ensure that every foot of core is useful in the quest to obtain valuable data about your reservoir.
