Geochemical samples collection

  • Gas Iso-tubes
  • Bulk cuttings and drilling fluid sampes in isojars and geochem jars
  • Cuttings collection for off-site XRD analysis
  • On-site XRF analysis
  • On-site FTIR analysis

Geochemical analyses are gaining importance and prominence in unconventional reservoirs, when petrographic features are more difficult to discern, and geochemical quantification or drill cuttings and/or core leads to determination of geomechanical properties of the rock drilled.
