QEMSCAN 50 is a fast and affordable alternative to optical point counting and XRD. This high volume scan provides statistically robust bulk mineralogy and porosity data gathered from up to 40 000 data points.
|QEMSCAN 50 Key features|
|Scan area||10 x 10 mm|
|Scan resolution||50 μm|
|Mineralogy data points||40 000|
|Standard deliverables||Modal mineralogy
Porosity (of core)
|Minimum project size||20 samples|
The QEMSCAN 50 service is ideal for log calibration, precise stratigraphy mapping or as a screening tool to select samples for higher resolution scans. It is routinely used by development teams to generate precise stratigraphy for a field. Using QEMSCAN 50, geologists can gain a detailed understanding of the mineralogy while petrophysicists can refine the spatial resolution from seismic surveys and help interpret and control log data.
|Cuttings lithotyping||Determination of up to 5 lithotypes per sample and reporting of agreed rock properties per lithotype.||20|
|Individual cuttings reporting||Quantification of agreed rock properties per individual cutting in a sample.||20|
A reservoir development team needs to understand the stratigraphy more precisely in order to plan a field development. They have 3D seismic data, logs, core from one exploration well and cuttings from a further three. We scan 200 samples at 50 μm.
