Coring in fractured formations can lead to some of the most challenging operations. ALS delivers a range of solutions that can be combines to improve coring recovery, quality and efficiency, saving both rigtime and money.
Describe the service in this group.
ALS has developed several jam mitigation solutions with our Galileo Jam Mitigation technology being developed for the QC 6 ½” core barrel platform and utilises sliding sleeves inside the Inner Barrel Assembly which allow for a total of up to two core jams within the Inner Barrel Assembly.
ALS had developed the Jam Advanced Warning System as an aid to core jam detection during coring operations.
‘On-Ice’ is an innovative technology designed to improve efficiency and combat the problem of core jamming. Jamming is the primary issue associated with coring cost and the degradation of core quality.
The Sealed Bearing Unit has been designed to further increase the independency of the inner barrel assembly from the outer barrel, reducing inner barrel rotation and other forces generated by the rotation of the outer barrel assembly.
The Soft-Pro Gyro Head is an innovative upper head design which allows the inner barrel to rest freely within the outer barrel, ensuring total independence between the inner and outer barrels.
