ERSA, Elemental Residual Salt Analysis

ERSA involves extracting residual salts or water from cores and measuring the ion content. The data can be used to characterise the chemistry of irreducible and aquifer water brought to the surface in core samples.

ERSA data may provide information on:

• The spatial distribution of chemistry variance within reservoirs.

• Chemistry data from hydrocarbon saturated strata or tight aquifer intervals from which conventional water samples cannot be obtained.
