X-Ray Diffraction (XRD)
X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) is a standard service for any mineral identification and quantification in the oil and gas exploration industry. As such, associated sample preparation and analysis is well understood as are capabilities, strengths and weaknesses. Chemostrat provide a reliable, quick XRD service for both whole rock and clay fraction quantification. More importantly, we use this standard data in our reservoir quality studies, our stratigraphic studies and we use the data to calibrate out rapid acquisition FTIR instruments, or our in-house ChemMin normative mineral modelling software, i.e we take XRD data beyond “simple” mineral identification and quantification.
