You will take samples for further analysis, for example by drilling plugs (cylindrical samples) from the core. The work sometimes is physically strenuous as it involves lifting cores.
  • Sample preparation. Cylindrical samples taken from the core need to be prepared, soxhlet cleaning, sample drying, ct-scanning, brine and oil preparation.
  • Basic Core Analysis. You will be involved in standard core analysis, such as Dean Stark water saturation, determination of density, porosity and permeability.

In the beginning you will work alongside senior colleagues until you are trained and able to perform the tasks independently. You will use working instructions to perform your tasks and standard forms and sheets to report your results to project managers and laboratory supervisors.
