Columbine Corporation offers both on-site and remote geosteering services. On-site steering is performed on the rig by our trained and experienced mudloggers. Remote geosteering is delivered from our command center in Denver, Colorado, by experienced geologists, all of whom have previously mudlogged. Our staff of professionals have a resume of wells which include most basins from Ohio to Nevada, and North Dakota to Southern Texas. There are also customized schedules that may be negotiated for night, weekend, and vacation fill-in.
