ConocoPhillips Erwin #1 - Conventional Core

It's very encouraging to see that ConocoPhillips (COP) obtained conventional core in their 3rd Austin Chalk well, the Erwin #1.  The report on SONRIS indicates that COP attempted to recover 283' of core. Hopefully they had success in recovery.  This continues to show how COP is preceding with a smart and very deliberate exploratory approach to proving up their large acreage position.

The cross section below confirms that the core was well placed and long enough to capture the entirety of the Austin Chalk.  These rock data will provide excellent data including porosity, permeability, saturations, gas volume, oil gravity, and geochemistry.  In addition, geological attributes such as facies and rock type can be determined.  These data will be integrated into their petrophysical analysis and will assist with drilling, completion design, and production.
