MICRO-STRAT’S INNOVATIONS AND CONTRIBUTIONS

 

MICRO-STRAT INC. is well qualified to perform the tasks involved in this study in a timely, cost effective manner, utilizing the expertise of our extremely high-caliber micropaleontological and sequence Stratigraphic specialists. MICRO-STRAT INC. has an impressive track record of innovations as a consulting service company. Some of the more significant contributions MICRO-STRAT has made to the consulting service field are listed here:
 
1983 Introduced our high resolution biostratigraphic checklist into the Gulf of Mexico and other areas of the world. Analyzed samples every 30 feet for planktonic and benthic foraminifers, calcareous nannofossils, palynomorphs, etc. Assigned biostratigraphers to area that they were very experienced.
1984 Recognized and used calcareous nannofossils as essential microfossils in age dating and well correlation in the Gulf of Mexico.

Introduced a 5-zone paleobathymetric subdivision from 600-6000 feet.

Compiled a detailed correlation chart of planktonic and benthic foraminifers and calcareous nannofossils with age in millions of years

1985 Developed the first Deep-water Zonation for the Plio-Pleistocene using Calcareous Nannofossils, Planktonic Foraminifers and Benthic Foraminifers for use as a refined method of correlation from shelf to deepwater.
1986 Introduced species abundance and diversity histograms and their patterns to identify the Warm and Cool (with Jim Lamb), increase and decrease in paleowater depth.
1987 Recognized fossil peaks, increase in water depth and increase in temperature correspond to Vail’s Maximum Flooding Surface Condensed Sections (with Dr. Bernie Shafer) and that they could be used to recognize and age date high aptitude, through-going reflectors on seismic profiles.
1988 With Dr. Peter R. Vail developed the a new technology, Seismic Sequence Stratigraphy by integrating the High Resolution Biostratigraphy and Paleobathymetry, Well-log Signatures and Seismic Reflection Profiles as a refinement of Seismic Stratigraphy.
1990 Published (with Dr. Peter R. Vail) the new Plio-Pleistocene Global Cycle Chart based on Seismic Sequence Stratigraphic data from more than one hundred wells. (Revised the Global Cycle Chart of Haq, et al., 1987.
1990 With Dr. Peter R. Vail, Constructed a Seismic Sequence Stratigraphic Grid, using 65 wells, for the Plio-Pleistocene from South Timbalier to West Cameron, Ewing Bank, Green Canyon, Garden Banks as a non-priority project.
1990 With Dr. Peter R. Vail, made the first IHRDC VIDEO on Well-Log Seismic Sequence Stratigraphy to hundreds of Scientists.
1991 With Dr. Peter Ft Vail, continued to conduct the industry wide short courses on Well-Log Seismic Sequence Stratigraphy to hundreds of Scientists.
1992 1992  With Dr. Peter R. Vail, conducted the first MPG industry wide short course on Well-Log Seismic Sequence Stratigraphy to hundreds of Scientists, in London.
1993 With Dr. Robert Mitchum, revised the Miocene Global Cycle Chart of Haq, et al., 1987, using sequence stratigraphic data and interpretations.
1994 Developed the Reservoir Parasequence Analysis technology to help correlate reservoir sand in oil and gas fields by the Integration High Resolution Biostratigraphy, Well-logs and Seismic Reflection Profiles on a Reservoir Scale
  Developed the “Seismic Biostratigraphy’ technology – the ability to perform Seismic Biostratigraphy – Sequence Stratigraphy while a well is being drilled using High Resolution Biostratigraphy, Paleobathymetry and a Seismic Profile.
1995 1995  -Developed the “Seismic Biostratigraphy’ technology – the ability to perform Seismic Biostratigraphy – Sequence Stratigraphy while a well is being drilled using High Resolution Biostratigraphy, Paleobathymetry and a Seismic Profile.
1990 With Dr. Peter R. Vail, taught more than 25 short courses to approximately 1000 scientists around the world in Seismic Sequence Stratigraphic Analysis methodology.
1990-1997 With Drs. Peter R. Vail, Robert Mitchum and Jory Pacht applied the Well-log Seismic Sequence Stratigraphic analysis methodology to numerous wells and projects in the Gulf of Mexico and around the world.
1997 With Drs. Bernie Shafer and Peter R. Vail refined the Reservoir Parasequence Analysis as it applies to correlating sands in the Subsalt Environment.
