Suriname Swamp

Coring 3″ Diameter Oil Sands Wireline Core into PVC Liners

Built for a client in Suriname, these track “swamp buggies” were constructed as large, heavy, floating barges with tracks.  They were completely disassembled and rebuilt on the project.  The drilling rig was retro-fitted and readied for safe, conventional drilling operations.  We provided large diameter, wireline coring equipment specifically built for use on lower rotational speed rigs.   The core system compensated for drilling hydraulics for higher volumes with lower pressures that were required in the sediments and through the resource.  Oil sands were cored into PVC liners and the core was shipped, frozen, to a lab in Houston for analysis.
