Vista Clara and Geoprobe Partner to Serve Direct-Push NMR Market

Vista Clara announced that Geoprobe is now the exclusive distributor for Vista Clara’s Dart™ Direct Push Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) logging instruments in national markets in North America, Central America, and Columbia.

NMR is a powerful technology that provides direct and non-destructive detection of hydrogen in the formation fluids. Direct-Push NMR logging can be performed in a variety of remote and not easily accessible areas providing robust, highly efficient, and high-resolution measurements of hydrogeologic properties of native formation.

In comparison to conventional DP methods, DP-NMR provides a direct measurement of volumetric water content as well as bound and mobile porosity, differentiation between different soil and sediment types, and estimation of hydraulic conductivity values in the range of 0.001 m/day to over 1000 m/day, which covers a range of much higher hydraulic conductivity than HPT tool measurements (HPT sensitivity limit is 30 m/day).
