The goal of XRF Solutions is to use X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) technology to provide the client with the ability to log vertical and horizontal wells from a chemical perspective. This can help to increase hydrocarbon production while reducing exploration and completion costs.
XRF Solutions is headquartered in Calgary, the “heart of the new west” and Canada’s oil and gas capital. The company was established in the summer of 2012 by Tom Weedmark and Ron Spencer. At the time, Tom was a graduate student working towards his M.Sc. in geology under Ron’s supervision at the University of Calgary. Their research into XRF applications in the Horn River Basin spawned extensive commercial interest in applying similar techniques in other geologic formations. This interest is what led to the creation of XRF Solutions. Shortly after incorporation, the company signed a joint venture agreement with Cabra Consulting providing the ability to conduct on-site XRF analyses.
Since inception, XRF Solutions has completed over 200 individual well studies for a variety of operators including Suncor, Shell, and Devon. These projects have been conducted in conventional, unconventional and heavy oil reservoirs including the Mannville, Duvernay, Montney, Horn River and McMurray formations to name a few. Our passion for the development and understanding of new and exciting hydrocarbon plays means we are always eager to take on a new challenge.
