Elemental analysis anywhere on site for oil and gas exploration & production

Portable XRF solutions are making a critical difference in oil and gas exploration by providing fast, reliable data through easy-to-use handheld and bench top platforms. We offer analyzer solutions that meet the most critical challenges in this industry.

Instant, Actionable Data for Advanced Oil and Gas Exploration and Drilling

Users can infer mineralogical properties favorable to oil and gas production from data collected in real-time with the Thermo Scientific™ Niton™ XL3t Ultra handheld XRF analyzer. This instrument is valuable for upstream oil and gas exploration and production, offering rapid, on-site chemical analysis of rocks, cuttings, and cores that can be used for identifying formations and determining the mineral composition of the rock.

Detect Oil-bearing Strata, Improve Mud Logging and Enhance Geo-steering

Enhanced elemental analysis for critical applications in oil and gas exploration and shale gas exploration is handled easily by the Thermo Scientific™ Niton™ FXL Field X-ray Lab, a portable desk-top-style analyzer. Now featuring z-CAL, a fit-for-purpose calibration and operation methodology, the Niton FXL Field X-ray Lab is ideal for light element, including low levels of magnesium and aluminum, in prepared samples and with or without helium purging.
