Diversified Well Logging LLC was founded in 1952 by the Klibert family. DWL is a privately held business that specializes in mud logging and mud logging related services. Over the last 60 years, a lot has changed in the industry, and we have made it our goal to keep up with those changes. We are proud to be a part of this dynamic industry, and we never forget the most important aspect - formation evaluation.
Solid Experience and Technology
The backbone of our service rests firmly on our experienced field and support personnel. The average Diversified logger has more than ten years experience in the field. In addition, our support staff averages twelve plus years of experience. However, we do not rely on experience alone. We also provide our field personnel and clients with the latest technology in mud logging instrumentation, gas detection, chromatographic analysis and sensors. We combine these technologies with in-house software development to provide the client with reliable and timely data.
