Our innovative cuttings sample workflow aims to extract data with maximum value from cuttings in the most cost-effective way. The cuttings workflow involves our newest cuttings technologies such as Spectral Gramma Ray (SpetralGR), Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR), and Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR).
Cuttings Technology: SpectralGR
Our technology of Spectral Gamma Ray using as-received wet cuttings or dry-washed cuttings provides high-quality data of K, U, Th, and SpectralGR. Non-destructive, fast (~3 mins per sample), and cost-effective Applications: 1) Determine confidence level between results from drill cuttings and downhole logs 2) Resolve ambiguity on cuttings depth shifts 3) Provide alternative gamma log when downhole GR log is uncertain or absent 4) Estimate shale or clay contents, clay typing, organic matter, and depositional environment 5) QC mudlogging and store wet cuttings and so forth
Cuttings Technology: NMR
Our cuttings Technology of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) using as-received wet cuttings provides quality data of NMR T2 distribution, Clay Bound Water (CBW), "Bound" Fluids, "Free" Fluids, Total Fluids, T2logmeanCBW, and so forth. Non-destructive, fast (~3 mins per sample), and cost-effective Potential applications: 1) Extract information about clay bound water 2) Use as a proxy to estimate in-situ formation free fluids 3) Investigate NMR T2 distributions for additional fluid characteristics
Cuttings Technology: FTIR
Our cuttings technology of Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) serves as a fast screening tool providing quality data of IR spectra. Non-destructive, fast (~40 seconds), and cost-effective Potential applications: 1) Use for rock-typing 2) Estimate mineralogic composition
