Chemostrat invented wellsite chemostratigraphy in 2000 which lead to a 10 year alliance with Halliburton and the establishment of the LaserStrat service. Chemostrat undertook instrument R&D, provided staff for wellsite deployment, and completed numerous predrill pilot studies for this service. In 2012 Chemostrat emerged from the Halliburton alliance and have now established an independent comprehensive wellsite chemostratigraphy and mineralogy service. Visit the Wellsite website.
