For a drilling engineer, much of the value of paleontology/biostratigraphy lies with its ability to assist with correlation. The decision to mobilize paleo would depend on how confident geoscientists are in their correlations. Correlation affects Read more…
Geohistory is our specialty.
We’re a full-service micropaleontological consulting firm specializing in biostratigraphy services. Our most extensive expertise is in the Gulf of Mexico (GoM), with international experience.
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.
About Paleo Data Inc.
Since 1968, Paleo Data Inc. has utilized a team approach to ensure consistent and reliable biostratigraphic services from regional mapping to reservoir modeling, as well as, from bit to sample archival. 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. Our reports are ready to be integrated into your fully comprehensive geologic database.
