High definition core/sidewall plugs imaged up to 80X magnification under white and/or UV light provide clear visibility of individual pores. Core plugs and sidewall plugs play an integral part in most well characterization projects. By combining HDPlugs with our software suite, well viability can be estimated with grain size analysis.
For every sidewall core taken in a field there may be hundreds of cuttings samples. Core cuttings can be integrated with mud-logger’s notes to provide an often untapped source of valuable information for reservoir characterization. Cuttings are routinely sampled, packed into envelopes, and stored somewhere in a box. If needed, they will be difficult, if not impossible to locate. Our archiving methodology provides instant, one-click access to any sample or group of samples.
