Who Should Attend
People within the industry who are currently using or thinking of using HH XRF instruments, both in terms of machine operation and data interpretation.
The intention of this course is to:
- Demonstrate through worked examples the application of data derived from HH XRFs in shale resource plays
- Provide an understanding and appreciation of data quality, data correction and QC
- Show how to acquire HHXRF data directly from core samples
The course will begin with a practical demonstration of HHXRF analysis on both core and cutting samples, and will include a discussion on radiation safety, sample preparation (cuttings) and instrument placement. Next will be a discussion of data quality with respect to different elements and comparison with different analytical options. This section will include a discussion of the data acquired earlier and how SRM’s should be used as part of the data QC protocol. Additionally there will be discussion on how HHXRF data quality varies depending on sample, preparation and instrument set-up. We will finish up the morning session with an exercise on data QC, and additional discussion/questions.
In the afternoon, we will show interpretation techniques using a series of worked examples emphasizing stratigraphic correlation, characterization and integration with other elemental datasets. We will follow that with a discussion and examples of how depositional environment (including paleoredox and facies), mineralogy and relative brittleness calculations can be modeled for HH XRF data and what limitations are associated with these interpretations. We will then have one more exercise on data interpretation, and conclude with a final discussion and Q&A.
