It has been widely acknowledged that core handling is critical to the preservation of core integrity.
Unfortunately adequate handling procedures are often not employed, limiting the accuracy of core data. The economic impact of erroneous analysis can be massive, especially when the consequences of inferior or inadequate data are not fully realised.
To obtain high quality core, Kirk Petrophysics™ offers an advanced method for core stabilization. This stabilization method along with expert supervision and quality control of core handling at the well site, guarantees a substantial improvement in core quality. When required, this service can be also offered in the laboratory. An independent-expert report including recommendations is submitted to ensure high quality core and thus high quality reservoir data.
All our methods and recommendations are based on extensive experience and broad knowledge of core handling and core analysis. This holds for consolidated and for friable and soft reservoir sediments both in the area of services and research.
