Core Samples Provide Vital Data in New Shale Field
Core samples can often prove to be invaluable when it comes to oil and gas research. Xtra Energy recently announced the completion of a core hole drilling program in the Pasquia Hills oil shale field. The groundbreaking oil shale field is located in Saskatchewan, Canada. A total of three core sample holes were drilled in the oil shale permit, a field that spans more than 86,000 acres. These core samples were drilled for the express purpose of examining potential deposits as well as determining what will become the primary mine site of a new plant facility.
