Routine Core Analysis (RCAL)
Routine Core Analysis instruments are used to measure the properties of rock samples. The reservoir properties and accurate input data are provide for a geological model.
Core gamma, porosity, permeability and fluid saturation are measured as well as lithology and other parameters. Besides, imaging and preservation of cores are done in MAPSA‘s RCAL laboratory.
- X-Ray tomography (core & plug CT-scanning)
- Gamma-ray logging (spectral and total core gamma, depth matching)
- Core preparation (inspection, layout, cleaning, & marking)
- Core sampling
- Core plugging (consolidate & unconsolidated cores, in diameters of 1, 1.2 and 1.5 inch)
- Plug trimming
- Soxhlet cleaning
- Humidity and conventional oven drying
- Dean-stark saturation determination
- Mounting of unconsolidated sand and fractured carbonates
- Ambient Helium porosity and grain density determinations.
- Gas permeability determination & Klinkenberg correction
- Klinkenberg absolute permeability
- Porosity & permeability determination at overburden Condition (up to 10000 psi)
- Brine permeability determination
- Whole core preservation in Wax
- Core slabbing
- Digital core photography (UV & white)
- Core resination
- Core storage
