A New Approach to Cores

The keys to the efficacy and value of core in the oil and gas industry are accessibility and facility. A digital archive of core imagery enables everyone to read from the same page no matter if they are in Williston, Denver, Luanda or London. More importantly, it centralizes the data in order to forestall the inevitable ‘data hunt’ that accompanies any well.

Our technology solutions allow several medical universities to teach histology, cellular biology and neuroanatomy through virtual microscopy. For the end user, technology developed by PetroArc International dramatically increases the minimum resolution of highly magnified virtual slides. Our images are required viewing at the medical school at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.


The innovative research library being developed at the University of North Dakota’s Harold Hamm School of Geology and Geological Engineering has helped students and professionals alike gain unparalleled access to extremely accurate imagery that’s much easier to access than the original sample.
