Barents Sea Regional data pack

 

Rocktype presents a multi-client QEMSCAN data pack of samples from 42 Barents Sea wells.

  • 215 samples at QEMSCAN 50 provides mineralogy and porosity
  • QEMSCAN 4 scans available for detailed textural studies
  • Available May 25th 2017

The 50 μm scans provide a useful calibration for petrophysical and seismic data while the high resolution 4 μm scans give unique reservoir quality insights. This survey compliments the in-depth study of 1000 samples from 11 wells for APA 2017

Sampled wells

For this regional study we have sampled core from 42 wells across the Barents Sea. This geographically broad survey covers wells in the APA 2017 Barents Sea area and beyond.

Data delivery

All data will be provided electronically and includes:

  • QEMSCAN 50 mineral map images from 215 samples
  • Tabular mineralogy and porosity from 215 samples
  • High resolution QEMSCAN 4 mineral maps from individual samples (optional) 

QEMSCAN 50 mineralogy

This survey showcases the new high-volume QEMSCAN 50 service from Rocktype. This fast, low-cost service enables clients to get precise mineralogy and porosity throughout all cored intervals in these wells. 

 
 
 
 
 

QEMSCAN 4 high resolution petrography

From the samples scanned at 50 μm, we will scan samples at 4 μm on request. These high resolution scans enable detailed study to texture, pore lining phases and mineral association. A key data set for reservoir quality studies.

 
 
 
 

Subsequent CASP project

Rocktype has teamed up with CASP in Cambridge for project planning and sample selection. CASP will in turn analyse the data further to be included in a future CASP report. The CASP delivery will emphasise heavy mineral abundance and provenance, not considered in the Rocktype data delivery.
