About us

Mid Continent Well Logging has provided operators in the Oil and Gas industry with dependable and accurate mud logging services since 1990. Our main offices are located in Norman, Oklahoma. Mid Continent has logged wells throughout Oklahoma, Texas, Kansas, and parts of Louisiana. Through boom and bust, Mid Continent has remained a reliable source for quality hydrocarbon logs.

Our Team

The MCWL team is the pride of our company. Our loggers are highly experienced professionals, many with decades of experience in mud logging. Our team has experience in logging many potential pay zones, including the Hunton, Mississippi, Arbuckle, Layton, Simpson, Caney, and Woodford. Nearly 80% of Mid Continent's wells over the last eight years have been horizontal wells, and our loggers are experienced in both vertical and horizontal drilling. Our loggers are backed by 24 hour service technicians to ensure that we are gathering as much information as possible with little down time.

Success begins with quality personnel and the MCWL team is the pride of our company. Our loggers have many years of experience logging both verticals and horizontals in all major potential pay zones. Over 80% of our wells in the past 10 years have been horizontals. We target degreed geologists and seasoned mud loggers when adding to our team. Extensive, ongoing training is provided in all aspects of rig operation, the use of all mud logging equipment, and in detailed sample analysis. Apprentice loggers are assigned to a mentor until they master the nuances of logging excellence. All loggers are required to communicate fully with geologists running the well and to provide daily reports and logs at requested frequency and formats. It is also important that they communicate with all rig personnel to provide critical information and to keep their finger on the pulse of day to day operations.

One thing that separates MCWL from other mudlogging companies is the consistent excellence of our mudlogs and our dedication to timely service. Despite the fact that our logs are highly customizable based on operator desires, loggers are required to follow strict protocols regarding mudlog appearance and content. Vertical and horizontal logs are tailored to your needs and can be in various sizes and formats. Besides ROP, gas, lithography, sample descriptions, drilling data, cut & fluorescence, they can include many other features including lithography %, sample pictures, and XRF plots. Logs are checked each morning by supervisors to ensure that they meet standards. Our loggers will provide geologists with daily correlation logs to offsets (if provided) on vertical sections. Service technicians are on call 24 hours a day to minimize downtime due to equipment failures. A dedicated team will follow a well from logging depth to TD and stay with a rig as it moves to a new location for the same company and geologist. We do everything possible to provide the highest quality service to our clients.

MCWL uses state of the art equipment and software to help maximize accurate, dependable information that enables maximized well production potential. We build our high quality gas detection systems and gas traps in our shop to help minimize costs to operators. Software is regularly updated to provide the latest and best versions.

MCWL is dedicated to the safety of our employees. We take a proactive approach to put in place policies, programs, and procedures that foster a safe workplace and reduce the risk of accidents. Our safety record over that past 27 years is excellent. MCWL uses the OSHA Compliance Suite to ensure that all standards are met in our Safety Manual and in our work environments. It is regularly updated to include any new requirements that may occur. Supervisors regularly visit job sites to monitor safe workplace practices. MCWL is committed to protecting our employees and any visitors to our work spaces.

MCWL is committed to providing quality service while minimizing our impact on the environment. We operate in compliance with all relevant environmental legislation while striving to use environmental best practices. Employees are encouraged to provide effective stewardship of the environment as they carry out their duties.
