Iron Mountain is the only information management company that can store and manage your core as well as your seismic assets.
Drill core and bore hole cuttings are extremely valuable and should be retained whenever possible, yet you’re being pressured to increase operational efficiency and reduce costs like never before. You need to reduce the time, effort and expense associated with managing your core assets, while keeping the material secure, protected and private.

Additionally, the application of technologies such as CT scanning, is adding significant value to drill core analysis, but only if you have the core.

An oil and gas corporation sought a partner to help consolidate their core portfolio spread across multiple locations and vendors. They needed to reduce the time, effort and expense it took to manage their core assets, while keeping them secure and private during storage and transportation. They also wanted to enhance the accessibility of the core cuttings and minimize transportation and handling to reduce the risk of physical damage.
Partnering with Iron Mountain allowed them to achieve these goals. They were able to consolidate their core and cuttings to a single, purpose-built facility and use it as an extension of their own— a comfortable, convenient and private workplace for their staff. They avoided an additional capital expenditure and had predictable and reasonable operating costs.
