We believe core studies are a fundamental starting point for reservoir characterisation, especially for fractured reservoirs. We have logged thousands of metres of core over the years.
We study sedimentological and fracture logging, and petrographic studies in Tertiary to Palaeozoic carbonates and chalks, clastics, glaciogenics, volcanics, and igneous to metamorphic basements. Locations include: West of Shetland, N. Sea, N. Africa, Russia, Ecuador, UK onshore, Croatia, Alaska, Iraqi Kurdistan, Uganda, Yemen, and Oman.
Most often this involves geostatistical analysis of the results, and integration with other downhole data especially image logs.
