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.
