UK Science Benefits from Offshore MSCL Capabilities

Geotek Limited, in conjunction with the European Petrophysics Consortium (EPC), recently re-designed a bespoke containerised laboratory containing a Standard Multi-Sensor Core Logger (MSCL-S). The use of an MSCL in a containerised laboratory offers the chance to acquire non-destructive MSCL datasets during field operations, and ahead of sample splitting or sub-sampling.


Geotek will be exhibiting at ISFOG 2015 in Oslo, Norway next week. Visit us at Booth 3 to discuss Multi-Sensor Core Logging (MSCL), X-Ray Radiography and CT, and Methane Hydrate Sampling and Analysis.

Geotek at The Society of Core Analysts 2014 meeting

Geotek exhibited at The Society of Core Analysts 2014 meeting France this month.

The meeting was an excellent opportunity for Geotek to show our growing range of products and services offered within the field of core analysis. Geotek launched a new range of XRF core scanning systems at the show along side our new contract Core Logging and Analysis Services for the Oil and Gas sector.

The SCA 2014 was well attended by delegates from across the world who visited the historic city of Avignon.

The 2015 SCA meeting will be held in Abu Dhabi during October next year.

MSCL container for Weatherford in Brazil

Geotek has signed a contract with Weatherford for provision of logging services to Vale in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. We prepared a containerised laboratory housing a multi-sensor core logging (MSCL) system configured for rock core logging. It has gamma density, electrical resistivity, magnetic susceptibility and natural gamma sensors installed.

Geotek Staff Quentin Huggett and Sally Marine travelled to Brazil to set up the equipment and to train staff contracted by Weatherford in how to run the MSCL. In order to optimise efficiency during the training process, initial training was carried out at the Weatherford laboratories at Xerem. The container was then transferred to the Vale rock core repository (Exploraçao Mineral de Ferrosos) near Belo Horizonte where the final setting up and training was carried out.
