X-Ray Fluorescence for Complete Elemental Composition
Significant heterogeneity in unconventional formations require tighter stratigraphic sequencing and mapping for recognizing trends and locating most attractive target intervals for production. However, traditional wellsite tools for routine stratigraphic investigations are limited and ubiquitous at times which can complicate or even mislead correlations and critical drilling/completions decisions. Reliable and repeatable elemental analysis (simple elemental curves and elemental ratio curves) provide the backbone for well to well chemostratigraphic correlations. Hundreds of additional curves can be utilized to identify key stratigraphic markers while drilling. Correlations of these key curves and ratios are used across multiple wells to map changes to each stratigraphic unit.
