Wellbore Sampling Workshop

May 27-28, 1987 – Houston, Texas
Convener: Barry Harding, Richard Traeger



Representatives from academia, industry and research laboratories participated in this workshop to identify major technological limitations in obtaining solid and fluid samples from wellbores. Top priorities identified for further development include: coring of hard and unconsolidated materials; flow through fluid samples with borehole measurements T, P and pH; and nonintrusive interrogation of pressure cores. Future directions should be to do the scientific measurements in the borehole itself. Such measurements should be research developments and not dependent on commercial logging developments.
