As one of the largest processors of cuttings and cores, Ellington & Associates, Inc. is well suited to prepare your samples for long-term storage. Sample archiving is available as part of our broader sample management system, or in conjunction with other washing and preparation services.

When prepared for either wet or dry storage, each sample will be properly bagged and labeled with interval, well, client, and operator information. Our archiving techniques produce environmentally friendly results, preventing oil and drilling mud from soiling surfaces and a noticeable reduction in noxious odors.
