Geotek Coring (following acquired company AAI) have long been associated with scientific drilling programs, providing a suite of wireline coring tool systems for the Japanese IODP drilling vessel D/V Chikyu. Coring efficiency and core quality are our key goals in geological formations that can range from nothing more than a thick soup through to the hardest rock formations. Geotek Coring also provides a highly specialized pressure coring capability allowing downstream pressure core analysis, which continues to be a major focus for Geotek to support the gas hydrate investigations and the future oil and gas shale market.
