From your survey tools to geochemical and petrophysical sensors, learn how new technologies can help you to make better real-time decisions in the field or back in the office. The presentation includes a demonstration of our new link with Seequent’s Central 3D platform. 

Developing a Workflow for Oriented Core Success – 1:45pm –  2:30pm

Presented by Chris Brown – Business Development Manager, Oriented Targeting Solutions

In this workshop, we’re focussing on utilizing the most effective hardware and software technologies to allow for real-time targeting.

A New Wave of Drilling Optimisation – 2:30pm –  3:15pm

Presented by Troy Giesler – IMDEX Global Sales Director

Processes in drilling have hardly changed in 30 years – so what have we come up with to aid efficiency in a time where we are drilling deeper, have more environmental restrictions, greater data requirements, higher safety and quality standards? In this workshop, we look at the tools of the future and those that are here now that are going to impact exploration drillers on the ground.
