Quick Core 76™ is a slim hole wire line coring system. Developed to deliver 3” (76mm) core in 6 1/4" (159mm) hole size at depths under 1000m. Utilizing common drill pipe allows the system to be used on any type of drilling rig. The system specializes in unconsolidated formations utilizing a disposable inner tube that houses the core. The Quick Core 76™ is equipped with a drill ahead feature capable of drilling out casing shoes, between core points, or to TD the well all without tripping the drill string.
As projects grow there was a need to develop a better slim hole coring system. Historically, core size was small in available systems and core length was kept short due to equipment restrictions. The need to develop a system that could cut longer cores and achieve a larger core size in slim hole applications was needed. The result was tools capable of cutting a 76mm (3") core in 9m (30ft) lengths in slim hole well designs. The system uses a consumable aluminum inner tube that is cut and capped on surface. This tube acts as a container from the core and leaves it in an undisturbed state until it arrives at the lab for analysis.
