Core invasion studies

Better data leads to better decisions

Get a whole new perspective on core invasion studies. The TracercoTM Core Invasion Measurement technique is used to measure the level of oil or water-based drilling fluid invasion into formation or Drill Stem Test (DST) samples.

Before drilling, a specialist oil or water tracer is added to the mud system. As drilling and production progresses, mud samples are taken at specific depths. Core fluid tracer analysis provides data on drilling mud core invasion or DST sample contamination.
