Triaxial Analysis (Low-Temp and High-Temp)
BGES is experienced in testing full diameter cores so that samples selected can be representative of the entire caprock interval, thereby providing a better evaluation of caprock integrity, especially for caprocks that are heterogenous in nature.
The caprock core testing must be done correctly to represent true conditions for oilfield use. Therefore, it is imperative that the samples be processed by a lab that specializes in testing caprock core for steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) and cyclic steam stimulation (CSS) applications. Samples need to be run cold as well as hot since part of the caprock is heated by steam.
