Ingrain Launches High-Definition Core Imaging and Logging

April 26, 2010 at 9:31 am Leave a comment

Ingrain, the digital rock physics company, introduced CoreHD®, its breakthrough technology platform for 3D high-definition imaging of whole core from oil and gas wells. Ingrain’s CoreHD technology has significantly advanced the oil and gas industry’s ability to use CT scanners to image and analyze core.

            “CoreHD gives geoscientists high-definition 3D visibility into their reservoirs at the wellbore scale,” said Henrique Tono, Ingrain’s CEO. “CoreHD is a major advance over the imaging that traditional core analysis labs provide. As the industry moves into complex rocks like oil shales, 3D high-definition whole core imaging is becoming an essential tool for geological core description, rock properties analysis and reservoir modeling.”

            Combined with Ingrain’s proprietary image processing capabilities, the company offers the CoreHD Suite, including the Continuous Core Viewer, the CT Borehole Image, and the CT Density and Atomic Number Log. The Continuous Core Viewer shows over 1,500 digital cross-sections per meter of core. The CT Borehole Image is similar to the kind of wellbore image that can be obtained from wireline logging. The specialized CoreHD image acquisition allows Ingrain to compute a Density and Atomic Number log.

            When used on the entire whole core from a well, the CoreHD Suite can be used to characterize rock types and flow units. This enables fast, accurate optimization of the number and location of core plugs for advanced rock properties analysis. Once the core plugs are selected, Ingrain can quickly image and compute accurate basic and advanced rock properties using its proprietary technologies for scanning, image processing and high performance computing.

            Ingrain’s CoreHD technology is being used at Ingrain’s digital rock physics labs in Houston and Abu Dhabi. Ingrain also has regional offices in Calgary and Rio de Janeiro and plans to expand its operations to the Middle East during 2010.
