Advanced Cuttings Analysis

Achieve real-time reservoir and rock-property analysis

Our RockWise® services deliver near real-time formation evaluation through advanced cuttings analysis. With laboratory-based techniques placed at your wellsite, our highly trained geologists deliver organic data, mineralogical analysis, and elemental rock compositions that enable faster and more informed decisions on wellbore placement, completions, and production.

X-Ray Diffraction Unit

Identify and quantify mineral compositions onsite

Rugged and portable, the X-ray diffraction (XRD) unit quantifies mineral composition, monitors changes in mineralogy, recognizes formation changes, and distinguishes potential pay zones while drilling.

 

X-Ray Fluorescence Instrument

Interpret reservoir stratigraphy and rock properties

Deployed at the wellsite, the energy-dispersive X-ray fluorescence (ED-XRF) instrument establishes chemostratigraphic zonation, identifies geological markers, and validates modeled rock attributes.

Source Rock Analyzer

Analyze critical organic parameters

Our source rock analyzer is the first routine pyrolysis instrument for the wellsite. The system delivers accurate measurements for total organic carbon, thermal maturity, free oil content, and source potential.

Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy

Determine clay type and total organic carbon

Another efficient method for quantifying formation mineralogy onsite, the fourier transform infrared spectroscopy device accurately identifies clays and other common sedimentary minerals during drilling.
