  4. Logging the Chalk

    By Rory N. Mortimore

    Chalk has proved to be one of the more difficult rocks to corelog as it breaks up readily during the drilling process leading to core-loss and destructuring, particularly where flints, nodular chalks, and/or fractures are present. One of the greatest difficulties is the identification of chalk...
