Geological Wellsite Supervision is at the centre of Chinook’s services. For more than 20 years, we have been providing professional wellsite geologists to clients of all sizes in the oil and gas industry. We take pride in providing the highest quality wellsite services including:
Our wellsite geologists will perform the preparation, description and logging of samples:
Our geologists prepare, vial and label dry cuttings, then index them for ulterior analyses.
Description of samples includes primary lithology, main constituents, grain size, cementation (type and degree), accessory minerals, porosity type, fluorescence and cut fluorescence.
Our geologists will also perform the interpretative side of cuttings analysis, providing:
Our logs use consistent, easy-to-read-layouts with comprehensive details. Besides petrographic descriptions of drill cuttings, striplogs include curves (geology and drilling curves, chromatography, wireline logging), directional surveys, mud data, bit data, engineering comments, and more.
We also provide the following striplogs dependent on well type:
Our geologists plot the actual well path against the designed well trajectory, perform MWD/LWD data stream monitoring, identify the wellpath position relative to stratigraphic markers , calculate formation dips along the wellpath and propose directional targets ahead of the bit.
To ensure the wellpath follows the optimal trajectory, our geologists are in constant communication with directional drillers regarding:
Reservoir navigation is performed using different disciplines and approaches, depending on reservoir characteristics:
The advances in un-manned chromatographs/spectrographs eliminate the need for an additional mudlogger. Our wellsite geologists can rig in, set up, supervise and maintain a modern gas detector, including:
We also offer DST, coring and wireline logging supervision as well as specialized sampling.
