As with lots of things on this earth, everything has its own origin and history and it takes time to actually form its history. It may have started from little things until with further studies and discoveries of man, they become significant to man. And the same goes with sandstone coring research. This has just expanded due to the consistent studies and new discoveries and uses it brings to man by researchers.
The history of sandstone coring research is not that specific. That is, this is just a branch in the study of rocks and other related subjects. Who would have guessed that sand particles actually can become a very significant factor in today’s world? Because of the constant studies conducted in the uses and the chemical components of the earth’s materials, it was also found out that formation of stones can be a result of several factors. And one of them is when the grains of sands have actually become sediments.
Sandstones, technically, are cemented forms of sands. They are formed by the regular phenomenon in nature over time without the interference of man. These materials are then found out to contain substances and elements that are not present with other rocks or stones. Then with further studies conducted and the modernization of equipment, sandstones are then somewhat used in other fields.
However, because the compositions of the sandstones were not yet applicable on a lot of areas, the study just continued to expand. Then, upon the resourcefulness and critical thinking of man, the problem on oil depletion in actual oil resources has opened an avenue for the sandstone coring research. It was then found out that the sandstone cores especially the ones taken from the Berea formation have significant uses.
