• Red Mountain
    Anticline in the Lower Permian Ingleside and Owl Canyon (red) formations at Red Mountain Open Space, Larimer County, CO. The alternating aeolian dune sands and tidewater carbonates are well-resolved by image logs.

We are a company of experienced geologists who offer comprehensive open hole and borehole image log analyses and interpretations.

Structural Analysis

Establishing the magnitude of structural deformation of the stratigraphic pile due to folding, faulting and salt diapirism. Characterizing lithologies, stratigraphic transitions, sequence boundaries, depositional environments and sediment dispersal patterns.

Present Day Stress

Determining the trajectories of the maximum and minimum horizontal compressive stresses acting on the borehole – crucial data for designing efficient hydraulic stimulations.

Fracture System Characterization

Borehole image logs yield crucial information about changes in stress differentials – information that has a dramatic impact on the fracturing character of the rock

Image Facies Analysis

Another important application of borehole image data is the use of textural characteristics combined with lithologic information to assign image facies. Image facies act as a proxy for depositional facies.

Image Core Comparison

An important application of borehole image data is image feature validation against core from the same wellbore. Comparison of depth-resolved core with image data provides a “ground-truth” for image features.

Geomechanical Analysis

The behavior of the borehole during advance of the drill stem is a function of the geomechanical properties of the rocks and the stresses they are subjected to.

Integration of logging, geomechanical and core data

We have extensive regional experience in sedimentary basins around the world.

About Our Company

Scour and Fill

We Provide Detailed Analysis and Interpretation of Borehole Image Logs.

We specialize in analyzing and interpreting borehole image logs for the oil and gas industry. Borehole imaging provides the best means of characterizing the spatial geometry of faults, fractures, bedding contacts, folds, changes in rock type, deformation textures, present-day stress indicators and many other rock properties. We utilize data acquired from service companies from both water-based mud and oil-based mud systems in vertical and horizontal wells.
