Lithology and Provenance Study for 22 wells of the North Grand Banks
Rocktype in partnership with RockWash has undertaken a data rich study of the lithology and provenance of the North Grand Banks wells. The foundation of this study is continuous XRF elemental profiles for all available cuttings samples from each well, automated mineralogy using QEMSCAN analysis and quantitative XRD analysis for selected samples. Project was completed November 2018.
22 wells of continuous XRF data (over 8000 samples)
Up to 160 XRD analyses on whole rock and clay fraction
Over 500 samples analysed with QEMSCAN
Study of regional provenance
Implications for reservoir quality
Key data for log correlation
