Express Lab

Quickly assess reservoir potential with advanced cuttings analysis

We provide rapid determination of organic geochemistry, mineralogy, and elemental composition based on bit cuttings. Our Express Lab services use advanced technologies―including source rock analysis (SRA), X-ray diffraction (XRD), and X-ray fluorescence (XRF)―to quantify formation attributes. With these answers, you can make informed drilling and completions decisions, maximize production, and develop cost-effective and efficient completion strategies.

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.
