What is Biostratigraphy?

Biostratigraphy focuses on correlating and assigning relative ages of rock strata by using the fossil assemblages contained within them. Usually the aim is correlation, demonstrating that a particular horizon in one geological section represents the same period of time as another horizon at some other section.

We’ve examined more than 13,000 offshore and 4,900 onshore wells in-house utilizing a consistent biostratigraphic framework for uniform and accurate stratigraphic correlation.
