Our Guiding Principles

Reviving Underutilised Resources

We are drill cuttings experts and have long believed that they are a vastly underutilised geological resource that sit in storage collecting dust. As technology has progressed over several decades, cuttings were left behind. Our guiding principle has been to convince the industry that cuttings have a vital role to play in addressing uncertainty in modern subsurface analysis.

Every Sample in Every Well

Geoscientists like high quality data and lots of it. Traditional laboratory analysis has focused on a small selection of samples in each well. We believe that, by analysing every sample in every well, we can provide our clients with a more comprehensive understanding of the full stratigraphic column. Big datasets drive deep learning algorithms and help us to see what we previously could not.

Preparing for a New Energy Economy

As exploration provinces mature, the digitalisation of rock is imperative. With more digital information, we drill smart wells and we drill fewer of them. Continuing to understand the subsurface will play a significant role in achieving a sustainable energy economy. We are continually finding new applications for our data in areas such as subsurface carbon storage and geothermal energy.
