CT and Photo Core Analysis

Virtual Core is a geological and petrophysical solution for the processing, visualization, and analysis of core CT and photographic data alongside a variety of well log data types and views.

Advanced detection algorithms incorporate machine learning techniques to provide a new level of quantitative analysis and classification for geologists and petrophysicists, accelerating and improving interpretation of core bedding, bioturbation, facies, and lithology features from well log data.

  • Data cleansing and processing
  • Integrated viewer for well logs, images, and volumes
  • Easy navigation from hundreds of feet of core down to millimeter-resolution features
  • Machine learning with advanced detection algorithms

Digital Core Analysis Workflow


Aligns data into a contiguous core, normalizes differences, and removes scan artifacts and coating effects to optimize data for advanced processing and viewing.


Processing provides quantitative automated feature detection, clustering, and classification tools for additional exploration


The Virtual Core Viewer provides macro to microscopic co-visualization of CT and photo imagery with well log data for full core and well log analysis.


Virtual Core processing provides auto-detection and display of core features such as parting fractions, dip angles, lamination frequency, intensity, and more for quantitative, consistent data interpretation across wells. Cutting-edge machine learning algorithms enable automated and semi-automated methods to classify similar rocks or events on full cores.
