CoreAll is Norwegian technology company developing the next generation core drilling solutions.
Core drilling, i.e. extracting continuous rock samples from the subsurface, is a central part of petroleum exploration drilling, providing essential information about the rock properties and the reservoir potential. This information is later used to determine drainage strategies and field development plans.
CoreAll's patented Intelligent Coring System ICS® is a modular, fully instrumented core drilling assembly. The system features high performance electrical connections, power generation, data processing and storage, and two-way data communication to surface.
The Logging While Coring LWC® module provides essential real-time logging information of the core as it enters the core barrel, enabling drillers and geologists to optimize the coring process by evaluating the core in real-time. Current data sets include Gamma Ray, resistivity, temperature, vibrations and inner barrel stall detection.
The Internal Drilling Device module allows unwanted core material to be drilled away and discharged into the return mud flow. Activation of the unit is controlled from surface, allowing the operator to switch between drilling and coring modes. Trips to change between coring and drilling equipment can thus be reduced or eliminated.
