  • Two-person, 24-hour cuttings catching, preparation, and examination
  • Sample catchers when requested by operations
  • Formation gas measurement (TG, C1 to C4 or C5) with hotwire or FID equipment
  • Advanced gas measurement – CVCT and gas-in/gas out when requested
  • Drilling data recorded from rig EDR systems
  • Minimum of two reports, data files, and formation logs per day.
  • Remote well monitoring when requested
  • Pre and post well evaluation and analysis when requested
  • 24-hour operational and technical support


In the modern land environment, clients need a straightforward service that can be easily mobilized, demobilized, and mobilized again as rigs are moved quickly from location to location. All of Diversified’s cabins are climate controlled, wheel mounted, and designed to accommodate all of the equipment necessary to successfully perform the required services. A crew of two will catch samples unless additional sample-catchers are needed when drilling rates are very high, or a higher sample rate is required. Gas systems are generally hotwire or FID systems. All other drilling parameters are taken from third party rig systems such as PASON. 


Offshore drilling has always been more demanding for operators and for the service companies, but this is the environment where Diversified began operations and is uniquely positioned to deliver its decades of experience to clients. All of our offshore cabins and equipment are built and maintained to meet MMS and DNV requirements. To reduce the human footprint on board our crews generally consist of two people with additional people sent when required by the drilling program. All data is streamed to the client office or to Diversified’s remote center where the well is monitored for added security.  

Remote Sample Collection

For remote cuttings collection, Diversified has RoboLogger™️.
Our automated system is the oil and gas industry's only fully automated cuttings collection device.

RoboLogger™️ automatically collects, washes, photographs, wraps, and stores up to 350 samples on a removable reel at a rate of 2 minutes per sample. RoboLogger™️ is controlled remotely and samples may be viewed remotely on the clients computer under white or ultra-violet light.

RoboLogger™️ allows us to address the challenge of clients needing more data and the challenge of cost control. Data density and quality is proven to be excellent and the cost allows it to be run economically on every well. With RoboLogger™️ the human footprint is also reduced along with associated HSE risks.
