Prototype testing at NORCE Ullrigg
December 14, 2020
An extended IDD drilling test was performed in December at the Ullrigg well test facility in Stavanger, Norway. The U3 test well had been cemented back from 1135m to 1040m in preparation for the drill test, wherein the cement would be drilled to verify operational behavior, reliability and wear of the IDD convertible coring bit. The IDD was used for two consecutive runs to drill from 1040m to 1129m. A total of 89m was drilled in less than 2 hours, giving an
average ROP of 45 m/hr.
New Operations Manager hired

CoreAll is proud to announce the addition of Stefania Bianchi to the team as Operations Manager. Ms. Bianchi holds an MSc/ Civil Engineering degree from Politecnico di Milano and comes with more than 10 years of industry experience. Formerly an operations coordinator for Baker Hughes in Pescara, Italy, she made the bold move to Norway in the middle of a global pandemic - much to the fortune of CoreAll!
First full-scale prototype test of CoreAll's IDD
November 23, 2020
CoreAll's much-anticipated Internal Drilling Device (IDD) had its first, full-scale prototype test in November 2020. The IDD allows the coring BHA to be used for full diameter drilling over shorter distances, enabling the operator to save round-trips when changing between drilling to coring. The test comprised function testing of the electronics, intregrated mechanical systems, and also a short, horizontal drilling test. The test was seen as a considerable success, surpassing the expectations for a first prototype.
Brazilian patent approved

Successful pilot test in Norway
October 20, 2017
The Intelligent Coring System (ICS) was recently tested in a shallow well at Xrig, Ålgård Technology Park, Norway. Coring cement in a pre-drilled wellbore, the system provided 100% core recovery in three out of four runs, all the while delivering gamma ray and resistivity data to surface in real time with 100% data decoding.
In addition to formation and fluid logging data, a novel measurement of inner barrel relative rotation was transmitted. These data proved very valuable in the diagnostics of downhole conditions and coring efficiency, allowing earlier and more precise adjustment of operational parameters
DEA joins CoreAll's ICS project
September 08, 2017
DEA Deutsche Erdoel AG has joined the Intelligent Coring System development program through its subsidiary DEA Norge AS. An international exploration and production company with headquarters in Hamburg, Germany, DEA has had a presence on the Norwegian Continental Shelf for over 40 years.
"The commitment from DEA allows CoreAll to finalize a development track that will bring much-needed renewal to the core drilling segment of the industry. We are very grateful for having them onboard,” says CoreAll CEO Per Erik Berger. DEA joins fellow E&P companies Lundin and Bayerngas as corporate partners in the project.
