Archived core material is an enormous reservoir of potentially valuable data which is often underutilised. Archived cores can be digitised using MSCL-S technology.
In this example we showcase MSCL-S data acquired from core originally drilled in 1985 from the Dunlin Field in the UKCS. The MSCL data firstly correlated with the existing sedimentological logs but also identified new, previously undescribed facies. This example highlights how much data can be rescued from archived core, which can then be used, confidently, to bolster new datasets and ultimately understand the reservoir or geological stratigraphy in enhanced detail without the requirement to acquire new core material.
