JPT Online features Ingrain's new CoreHD®High-Definition Core Imaging and Logging
Houston (May, 2010) JPT Online discusses Ingrain's recently launched CoreHD, a technology platform that allows for high-definition CT scanning and logging of whole core samples from oil and gas wells. The platform, which gives geoscientists 3D visibility into their reservoirs at the wellbore scale, also provides faster and more accurate optimization of sampling locations for rock-properties analysis. reservoirs.

The Journal of Petroleum Technology, the Society of Petroleum Engineer's flagship magazine, presents authoritative briefs and features on E&P technology advancements, oil and gas industry issues, and news about SPE and its members.
