FEI QEMSCAN WellSite expands to onsite core analysis 
with system delivery to Kirk Petrophysics.

The QEMSCAN® WellSite™ analysis system is an advanced onsite core analysis system that provides fast support for critical decisions in formation evaluation and drilling operations.

Core analysis is an essential component of formation evaluation used by geologists and engineers to determine the production potential of a well and to manage drilling and completion operations. Having this capability at thewell site enables reduction of analytical turnaround from several days or weeks to just a few hours (after the cores are retrieved from the core barrels or sidewall coring tools).

Jean-Valery Garcia, managing director of Kirk Petrophysics said: “"The automated mineralogy capability provided by the QEMSCAN WellSite solution increases the speed and accuracy of our core analysis. In addition to microscopic mineralogy information, it can also provide two-dimensional porosity measurements and textural detail for lithological classification, which is valuable characterization information.

He added: "With the QEMSCAN WellSite system, we can movethat advanced analytical capability right to the drill site, significantly reducing the time it takes to get the information to the people who need it most. Near real-time decisions are important for our customers to optimize their drilling and completion designs, especially in high rig-cost environments, such as deepwater operations.”"

The QEMSCAN WellSite system combines scanning electron microscopy and X-ray spectrometry to deliver automated mineralogical analysis. It also provides automated microscopic textural details, elemental compositional and two-dimensional core porosity analysis  unavailable from conventional techniques.
