Announcement: Petroleum Geochemistry Service


Chinook Consulting has recently added Geochem Lab Services to our ever expanding suite of professional services.

Geochemical well logs are created from samples using X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) that measure elemental concentrations and X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) that measure mineral/phase characteristics and abundance. Geochemical well logging is a proven tool that helps clarify subtle changes in hydrocarbon reservoirs. The technique utilizes systematic changes in elemental abundances and ratios to identify subtle shifts in the sediment geochemistry and mineralogy throughout the stratigraphic column.

Analysis of relative elemental abundances creates a quantifiable basis for understanding the mineralogy, provenance, anoxia, depositional environment, and diagenetic history of the formation being studied. Measurements are conducted on both drill cuttings and cores.

Geochemical well logs are utilized in:

  • Exploratory investigations
  • Regional framework studies
  • Drilling
  • Completions
  • Provide data for optimal field and reservoir evaluation, development, and management

Stay tuned for more services!
