Ten Reasons to Contract with MICRO-STRAT INC.

¥    Provide to the client  significant  risk reduction in exploration and development.
¥    Work very closely with our clients to help solve problems.
¥    Domestic & International (82 countries)

High Resolution Biostratigraphy

1.    Highest quality analysis using high resolution biostratigraphy and sample-by-sample paleobathymetric interpretations.
2.    Accurate “tops” based on detailed analysis (not a 3-5 minute “look-see”) after or while your well is drilling with quick turn-around-time.
3.    Calcareous nannofossil, foraminiferal and palynological experts with a combined total of 255 years experience in onshore and offshore areas.
4.    Graphic Correlation Plots: find unconformities, faults, reworked species and determine rates of sedimentation.
5.    Very cost effective and cost competitive company with 33 years of service

Seismic Sequence Stratigraphy

6.    Seismic Sequence Stratigraphic analysis – calibrate marker species, fossil abundances, ages, log signatures with 2-D and 3-D seismic.
7.    Seismic Sequence Stratigraphic Analysis for improved risk analysis using SMT (the Kingdom 2D/3D) workstation. Correlation of depositional facies in time related sequence and systems tracts.
8.    Identify and date maximum flooding surfaces on seismic after and while your well is drilling. Map systems tracts associated with reservoirs units.
9.    Reservoir Sequence analysis in a field: Correlate flow barrier assemblages and flow units (sands) in a field and determine reservoir sand type, basin floor fan, sheet sands, channel sands, etc.
10.    Integrated final report with data delivered in LAS -ASCII format and “Workstation ready”. Deliverables in color using a Design Jet HP 2500CP Plotter.

The added value that we can contribute to your drilling project, besides providing the high resolution biostratigraphy, reliable “tops” and sample-by-sample paleowater depths are:
Obtain a standard-of-reference wells that can be used to establish a seismci sequence stratigraphic well-tie for the area of interest.
   Project seismic stratigraphic reflectors away from the reference well in a360 degree arc to correlate to previous and potential new wells.
  Identify, age-date in milions of years (ma), the maximum flooding surfaces, the major high amplitude continuous reflectors on a seismic reflection profile and correlate these chronostratigraphic surfaces with the Global Cycle Chart of Haq et al., 1998.
  Subdivide your well(s) into third order depositional sequences, sequence boundaries, Highstand, Transgressive and Lowstand Systems Tracts including prograding complexes, forced regression, falling lowstand, bottom-set turbidites, slope fan and basin floor fan complex.
  Identify the third order depositional sequences and systems Tract that are associated with the potential hydrocarbon reservoirs, source rocks and seals.
 Determine the play concept(s) for the reservoir section, coastal belt sands, forced regression sands, bottom-set turbidite sands and channel overbank sands that are parallel-to-strike; incised valley fill sands and slope fan channel sands that are perpenticular to strike and basin floor fan sands that form pancake shaped reservoir.
  Predict the geometry, continuity and distribution of the reservoir sands both vertically and laterally.
 Correlate sand packages with a degree of confidence, from up-thrown to down-thrown fault blocks around salt domes and up-dip with down-dip.
 Determine timing of faults, unconformities, canyon development, salt intrusion, reef development, migration, maturation and seal of hydrocarbons.
  Use the up-dip pinchouts of various systems tracts for predicting stratigraphic and structural plays.
    Use the third order depositional sequences (Vail Sequences) to develop the geological history of the basin on 2-D seismic and 3-D workstations.
