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.

Onsite Analytic Gas Equipment

We are proud to offer a range of accurate and reliable hydrocarbon detection systems. Most popular being, the infrared/Chromatograph gas detection unit and a one of a kind flame ionization detection system (FID) which incorporates high-resolution hydrocarbon analysis of C1- nC5 with a cycle time of only 30 seconds. 

Both systems are extremely rugged, compact and portable with very little maintenance which in turn produces minimal equipment down time.
