For more information about digital data, please refer to our pages concerning lab and service fees.
Petroleum Hydrocarbon Chromatographic Analyses of Drill Cuttings and Core Chips from Michigan. . . . Collection includes chromatographic analyses from drill cuttings and core chips from Michigan oil, and gas wells, archived by the Michigan Geological Survey at MGRRE. Analytical data includes rock characteristics such as porosity and permeability, gas and fluid content (water and/or oil), and hydrocarbon fraction identification (C5-C26). Available in Microsoft Excel format.
MGRRE Cuttings Database - Searchable listing of over 20000 drill cuttings housed at MGRRE, Western Michigan University. Cuttings may be available for sampling, however, due to limited quantities, some samples may be available for viewing only at our facility.
NOTE: Our cuttings inventory shows footage ranges as written on the outside of the boxes. We never know what's actually in those boxes until we open them. Large footage intervals were not actually sampled at all.
Footages noted in the inventory listing represent the top and bottom of the sampling interval; WE DO NOT GUARANTEE CUTTINGS IN THE ENTIRE RANGE OF THE SAMPLED INTERVAL.
