Corporate Profile

NorAm Wellsite Services is a geological services company founded in 1995. It specializes in mudlogging, consulting geology, and rental gas detection equipment. Our corporate statement of purpose is: "To provide the finest geological services anywhere." We endeavor to realize that goal with each well we provide our services on.

Our five original partners possess a combined experience of 115 years. Our geologists and loggers have been carefully selected and trained to provide the professional wellsite services expected by our clients. This experience, while centered in the Rocky Mountain Region, includes several major basins throughout the United States. Our extensive well files include nearly 4,000 logs and geological reports dating back to the early 1950's, providing one of the most comprehensive libraries in the region.

In 1997 Noram formed a partnership with Drilltell Systems, Inc a subsidiary of
Continental Laboratories 1985 LTD., an industry leader in geological services in Canada since the 1960's. This partnership has enabled NorAm to not only expand its geological scope of operations, but to incorporate into its services advanced integrated gas detection technologies such as the Minipac 2100 total gas detector.

Experience and technology have come together in NorAm to create a firm equipped to handle your geological needs now, and in the future.
