MSCL and X-ray CT Services

Maximising data recovery from core material has been the focus of Geotek for the last 20 years, as we believe that if a core is worth collecting, then it is worth logging!

Onshore and Offshore Services

Core logging operations are conducted within our purpose-built core logging laboratory based at our offices in Daventry, UK, or within our mobile containerised laboratories. Geotek will mobilise these containerised laboratories with specialist staff to both onshore and offshore sites for industrial and research applications to acquire data in the field, saving valuable time and money.
