Pressure Core Laboratory Analysis
Cores are Collected to Get Data!
Cores are collected to obtain or confirm important data that cannot be reliably obtained remotely. Pressure cores may be initially required to collect and quantify gas and fluid content; however, they can now be used to determine permeability, consolidation and strength properties or to simply examine sedimentary core structure before expanding gases destroy the soil fabric. Geotek Coring can help achieve these goals using specialized laboratory equipment that can accept samples of core material at in situ hydrostatic pressures.
