MGPalaeo, Australian biostratigraphic experts, and Petrosys, an industry leader in mapping, surface-modeling and data-management software solutions, have signed an agreement that will allow data from MGPaleo’s AUSTRALIS™ geological database to be made available within the GPinfo data visualisation and manipulation package.
In a media release, MGPalaeo announced that from August 2018, GPinfo subscribers will be able to view a high-level summary of all available geological data (biostratigraphy, lithostratigraphy, and sequence stratigraphic picks, plus wireline logs, checkshot surveys, deviation data, and more) within MGPalaeo’s AUSTRALIS database.
This currently covers approximately 2000 wells across the North West Shelf, and further wells from other geographical regions will be added in the coming months.
MGPalaeo’s said its ground-breaking AUSTRALIS geological database contains the most up-to-date interpretation of stratigraphical data that exists, with all palynological data reviewed and revised to one consistent zonation scheme (the industry standard MGP 2014).
Dr Marty Young, joint director of MGPalaeo, commented: “We’re excited to be working with the dedicated team at Petrosys to bring greater exposure of quality-controlled and consistent geological data, which is fundamental to derisking all exploration models.
“Through GPinfo, the leading source for Australasian exploration information, geoscientists will be quickly able to see what data exists for each well, and know that this data has been reviewed by experienced geologists.”
Scott Tidemann, CEO of Petrosys, commented: “The teams at GPinfo and MGPalaeo have worked hard to deliver practical and reliable data management solutions to the industry and it is with great pleasure that we can now bring this, and other, high quality sub-surface datasets into the hands of GPinfo subscribers.
“It is immensely gratifying to see the benefits of working with a respected and trusted partner such as MGPalaeo delivering additional value to our user base.”
GPinfo’s monthly newsletter, which provides accurate data updates summarizing industry activities, is likewise set to include stratigraphic updates from the AUSTRALIS geological database each month, too. This will enable users to be kept informed of all new open-file well data as it becomes available.
