Biostratigraphy services at Ellington Geological Services include: 1) Wellsite biostratigraphy 2) Pre-drill biostratigraphy 3) Post-well biostratigraphy 4) Other services: “Hotshot”, Biosteering, and Legacy well We offer multidisciplinary biostratigraphy services to provide subsurface solutions across the oil and gas value chain in exploration, new well delivery, and reservoir development activities. ---Micropaleontology ---Nannopaleontology ---Palynology Our goal is to help our clients reduce the risks and uncertainty associated with complex business decision-making. We customize our services to meet the needs of each project offering fit-to-purpose and cost-effective solutions. Our team has global experience and particular expertise in regions such as North America (Gulf of Mexico and Canada Atlantic Margin), South America (Colombia, Venezuela, Trinidad, Guyana, and Suriname), North Sea, West Africa (Angola, Ivory Coast, and Ghana), Mediterranean Sea, and South China Sea. We have successfully delivered high-quality, consistent, and efficient work to the oil and gas industry over the decades.
Principle wellsite biostratigraphy services: ---Perform real-time stratigraphic monitoring ---Reduce drilling surprises ---Predict stratigraphy ahead ---Pick casing points ---Pick coring points ---TD selection ---Save rig time costs ---Cavings analysis Wellsite biostratigraphy is relatively inexpensive compared to other logging or drilling tools. It is a minimal cost in relation to the total cost of drilling a new well. In addition, it can offer unique solutions that other techniques cannot. Multiple crews including highly experienced biostratigraphers and technicians are available to perform wellsite jobs and assist your drilling programs.
Pre-drill biostratigraphy services: ---Design and layout a cost-effective biostrat analytical program that better fits and supports the operational objectives and aims of each well ---Tailor biostrat programs to reduce risks and uncertainty in consideration of the unique technical challenges and HSE risks associated with each well ---Review details of existing biostrat data from offset wells ---Build a feasible and robust biostratigraphic model that will address and support operational decisions in real time ---Design and execute a pilot project to build a high resolution biostrat framework that will support the wellsite stratigraphic control
Principal post-well services: ---Infill micropaleontology, nannofossil and palynology analyses to provide a full coverage of the drilled section, and to increase the resolution on key intervals ---Integrate wellsite biostratigraphy data to update regional and field models including correlation with offset wells in IC (former ODM)
