About Us

Geotek specializes in high-resolution, non-destructive analysis of geological cores. We have supplied our range of Multi-Sensor Core Logger (MSCL) systems for over 20 years, using a suite of geophysical and geochemical sensors, providing equipment sales and services to science and industry worldwide. A team of talented individuals at Geotek design and build instruments while also offering core analysis consultancy field services (onshore or offshore) with an unmatched level of expertise and experience.

Sensors available for our logging systems include both those developed by Geotek as well as those provided in collaboration with third party manufacturers. This provides MSCL systems that can collect a wide range of multi-parameter data from sediment and rock cores with unparalleled resolution, accuracy and efficiency. Our systems are designed to be flexible and work with core material obtained from hard unlined rock cores to soft unconsolidated sediment cores in plastic liners. We even work with specialist pressure cores containing gas hydrates where the pressure can be retained at in situ conditions of up to 250 bar during the analysis. MSCL systems and services are provided on a sales, rental or consultancy basis around the globe for either onshore or offshore projects. Applications vary from academic users examining the sedimentary record in oceans and lakes for climate research, to industrial applications in the mining, hydrocarbon and offshore geotechnical sectors.
