Litho Scanner High-Definition Spectroscopy Service

For the neutron-induced gamma ray spectroscopy data acquired by Litho Scanner service, our multidisciplinary interpretation experts collaborate with you as needed, using advanced workflows and employing a multimineral solver to provide the most comprehensive petrophysical results. Accurate answers are delivered for even the most complex mineralogy. For example, the clay volume is independent of natural gamma ray radiation, so it is not influenced by the radioactive minerals in feldspars and carbonates. From the direct carbon measurement made by Litho Scanner service the volume of hydrocarbons in your formation can be determined—whether in the form of kerogen, oil, gas, tar, or bitumen.
