Republic of Lebanon
According to the Lebanese Oil and Gas regulations, Right Holders shall ensure that all necessary samples such as cuttings, conventional cores, sidewall cores, liquid and gas samples, logs and test data are collected during drilling and other well activities.
Core samples form the basis to assess the accurate geological properties of the hydrocarbon reserves as they are the only direct evidence available from beneath the earth. The core samples provide an opportunity to explore the characteristics of the reservoir. The geological cores are highly valuable to the oil and gas industry, as they reduce the uncertainty in reservoir evaluation to a great extent.
