Pacific-Rocky Mountain Section Meeting 2016 in Las Vegas, NV
Crown had a booth at this combined section meeting. Great venue at the Paris Hotel on the Las Vegas strip.
West Texas Geological Society-Permian Symposium 2016
Crown exhibited in the Horse Shoe Arena-Midland Texas. Great event and well attended. Met with many current clients and made new connections.
AAPG ACE 2016 in Calgary, Alberta
Tracy was able to attend. Overall low convention attendance in Canada, but many great technical sessions and posters available.
Tulsa Geological Society Black and Gold Golf Tournament April 2016
Crown entered a team and all had a great time.
AAPG Southwest Section Meeting in Abilene April 2016
Great networking and technical sessions. Met some great folks. Thanks for stopping by our booth.
H2S Monitor Ability Update
We have often been asked to provide low-level H2S analysis in concert with our
standard analysis. F.I.T. Tulsa now has included the ability for us to add our
detector output to their data inputs and crossplot low-level H2S and we can now
include H2S response as curve data in our conventional striplog application.
Availability for this application will be somewhat limited so please schedule in advance.
We have not changed our safety policy in that our H2S detector practice
precludes anyone using our abilities directly as an imminent danger detector.
Web monitor updates
Jim Soule has been developing our next sample flow monitor. We will now have interactive signals and cell
phone notification of errors. Jim has finished the prototype stages
and we will soon finish implementing the program. With quicker (immediate)
problem notification we will be able to improve our service record even more.
Mobile-friendly companion site
have launched the mobile device/ smartphone companion site. You can use this site to quickly
access phone numbers, etc. from your web-enabled and smart phones or PDAs. Check
this out at www.crowngeo.com .
Shale production character models
We have been working on data presentations that suggest reliable gas composition
estimates may be made for shale laterals such that eventual production character
can be modeled with our mudgas data. The mudgas HC ratio data conforms to
published contour maps for produced gas BTU values in the regions we have
examined. Contact Bruce for discussion if you are interested in this.
24/7/365 Quality Assurance Program
We have added new staff who work the overnight hours here to keep constant vigil
on all of our field operations. These guys review the status monitors all night
every night. We are able to cut down our error detection time and thereby cut
down overall error response time. We think we have the best program in the
industry, incorporating aspects of unmanned and aspects of manned operation to
achieve the best possible cost to benefit picture for our data.
Constant Flow Gas Extraction
are proud to offer another innovative development from Fluid Inclusion
Technologies, Inc. Known as The Gas Cannibal (tm), this system self-regulates
for fluid height using depth sensors and pneumatic adjusters. The sample quality
improvement is dramatic for gas sample regulation in problematic shale
