While industry standard techniques are to sample reservoir rock at the foot scale, MUD Geochemical has developed the means to quantitatively analyze on the inch to mm scale that is both faster, better calibrated/accurate, and cheaper than industry equipment. MUD serves some of the largest and most successful operators in North America unconventional shale and has focused primarily, to date, on the Permian/W Texas and EagleFord shales. "Premier empowers us with the tools and resources to significantly scale-up what we have built tirelessly over the past two and a half years, and will push industry science to the limit," says Nathan Ganser, the CEO of MUD Geochemical, Inc., who has joined POL's team as the Director of Geochemical Services.
POL's Senior VP Technical Sales, Allen D Howard said, "Premier is utilizing this ability to quickly generate thousands of quantitative data points on individual cores and in the analysis of cuttings to improve subsurface basin scale models, and better understanding variations in organic and inorganic components on a scale never analyzed. The geological complexities and heterogenous nature of unconventional plays makes this type of high-resolution formation evaluation technique quite practical, which is a focus at Premier Oilfield Laboratories."
