Core Handling and Preservation

We provide consolidated and unconsolidated preservation methods. We may, upon request, use a special method of core preservation like Brine Preservation.

We have experienced personnel, with established procedures to handle and preserve the in-situ conditions of core samples from well site to laboratory or warehouse. This near undisturbed state would provide the possibility of acquiring high quality and accurate analysis from these samples.
