Petrographic Thin Section Analysis

Thin section petrography is the foundation of interpretive Reservoir Quality Analysis. Statistics gathered during thin section analysis of whole core samples and drill cutting samples allow assessment of key factors including:

Highly porous Belloy Formation with bitumen (left) and multi-stage carbonate cemented Cardium Formation (right).
Optical microscope photographs of a petrographic thin section in plane polarized light (left) and cross-polarized light (right).
