Service Description

 

Whole core sections can be temporarily preserved by sealing the ends of the core liner sections. This is not recommended as a longer term preservation method but will allow the core to be processed quickly and without special equipment.

The aim of longer term sample preservation is to prevent fluid ingress/egress from the core and, for wettability maintenance, to prevent exposure to air to minimize oxidation reactions and evaporation. Both whole core samples and plugs can be preserved.
