EPSLOG has been tasked by Total to develop a new compact fully automated test bench born from the fusion of the micro indentation and the scratch test technologies.


We would like to thank Total for its trust and this great challenge, turned into success by two of our engineers and the input of another french company. Congrats guys!


Thanks also to Eliosys for letting us use their amazing sun simulator to bring our new born to light.




April 3-5, 2018. Bahrain

EPSLOG is proud to participate to the upcoming 2018 ARMA DGS workshop in Bahrain. The ARMA-DGS workshop will focus on not only the breadth and depth of fracturing technologies but also their values through field applications. Eight operators, fourteen service providers, and ten universities and national laboratories will present 33 technical topics. These include geomechanics training, operator perspectives, technology highlights, and case studies. A dedicated discussion session will explore collaborations among operators, technology developers, and service providers.





SPE/EAGE Workshop: The Future of Geomechanics in Brown Fields and Unconventionals

May 2-3, 2018. Abu Dhabi, UAE

EPSLOG will take part in the EAGE workshop on the Future of Geomechanics organized in Abu Dhabi this year. This event will focus on how geomechanics is currently being used, and how it can help in the future with the increasing pressure to maximize recovery from challenging environments. EPSLOG will present its contribution in a session on Data Accuracy, Reliability and Model Robustness.


This session aims at investigating state of the art approaches to deal with:

  • Uncertainties in the accuracy and interpretation
  • Variabilities within the rock formations and data acquired
  • Lack of data
  • Probabilistic risk assessments when deterministic ones are not at hand


5th SPE Workshop
Petrophysics - Reservoir Evaluation through Wellbore Measurements
26 - 27 Apr 2017 | Sofitel Abu Dhabi Corniche | Abu Dhabi, UAE

EPSLOG will attend the session on Core Analysis and Geomechanics.  The aims of the session is to give attendees unique insights into latest core test and modelling developments, appreciate the importance of a rigorous and consistent petrophysical interpretation of core data, and be better placed to assess the quality and reliability of rock property data input to reservoir evaluation and geomechanical characterisation.  The topics covered will include recent technological advances in continuous core data measurements and imaging; sample selection criteria and optimisation, and the advantages & limitations of different geomechanical approaches to understanding of formation behavior.



79th EAGE Conference & Exhibition
12 - 15 June 2017 | Paris | France

The 79th EAGE conference and Exhibition will take place in Paris on June 12-15. EPSLOG will attend the symposium and give an oral presentation on “Combining high-resolution profiles of properties measured on cores to enhance the geomechanical assessment of reservoirs”. Come and meet us for more information on the side of this session dedicated to Geomechanics.



51st US Rock Mechanics / Geomechanics Symposium
25 - 28 June 2017 | San Francisco | USA

The American Rock Mechanics Association 51st US Rock Mechanics/Geomechanics Symposium will be held in San Francisco, California, USA on 25-28 June 2017. The 2017 program will focus on new and exciting advances in all areas of rock mechanics and geomechanics. Epslog will attend the symposium and give an oral presentation on 'Accounting for small heterogeneity lengthscale for the upscaling of rock properties measured on core samples'. Come and take part in discussions about this topic and meet us in person!



2017 SCA Annual Symposium
Maximizing the Value from your Core

28 Aug - 1 Sept 2017 | The Hofburg Palace | Vienna, Austria

Epslog will attend the SCA symposium of the SCA in Vienna this year. Please visit our booth for information and latest news about our technologies and service offers.



Continuous Mapping of Mineralogy


Epslog introduces advanced core analysis workflows and new laboratory testing technologies to provide direct measurements of mechanical, acoustic, and mineralogical rock properties on whole core samples. High-resolution continuous profiles of these rock properties are used to

  1. Estimate geomechanical and petrophysical properties and their correlation with the  mineralogical composition,  and
  2. Map geomechanical facies for further calibration of well and reservoir models at different scales.

In this context, Epslog is currently developing a new hyperspectral imaging module integrated onto the Wombat to produce continuous high-resolution quantitative maps of the mineralogy of rock samples. This module is designed to create such maps from measurements taken on fresh cores, focusing on the grooves made during scratch tests. This enables mineralogical analysis on whole cores, before slabbing and before plugging.



Strategic Partnership Announcement (January 2017)



Epslog Engineering and MetaRock Laboratories are proud to announce a new strategic partnership to offer The Scratch Test, as well as other unique rock mechanics testing service packages to the US market! The Scratch Test provides a direct, independent, quantitative, and true continuous measure of rock strength (UCS) (i.e not a combination of several elastic and hardness indexes as obtained from rebound tests such as Schmidt hammer or others) at a centimetric scale.

The shared objective of these services is to increase the output value of core analysis workflows, by providing large sets of high quality data, earlier and faster than conventional laboratory testing methods. Making this expertise available to the US market will be a key step in the evolution of core analysis standards for geomechanics and petrophysics. 


Exclusive agreement for laboratory services in Norway



Epslog engineering and Weatherford Norway are proud to announce an exclusive agreement for laboratory services. Following the terms of this agreement, Epslog will be contracted for scratch test services in Norway exclusively via Weatherford. The objective of this agreement is to supply a complete and innovative suite of measurements on cores combining Epslog and Weatherford capabilities in Norway.


Dr Lutz Riepe


Epslog is proud to welcome Dr Lutz Riepe, internationally reknown petrophysist, as technical adviser. His experience will contribute to enhance the value proposition of Epslog for petrophysical applications.
