The CSIRO Petrophysics Laboratory conducts dielectric spectrographic analysis of rock samples including core samples provided by industry and other research organisations, as well as powdered drill cuttings samples.
Dielectric properties of rock are indicators of wettability, porosity, mineralogy, pore structure and pore geometry.
Dielectric logging is rapid and can be used to determine moisture content and mechanical properties of rock where other techniques are slower and less cost effective.
