It was a pleasure to be able to attend Prospex 2020 in December last year, albeit virtually. In addition to hearing about prospects available for farm-in, there were discussions of what a net zero future may mean and opportunities to catch up with colleagues and clients. Read more about our take-homes from the conference in our newsletter.
In December, Merlin’s Principal Geochemist Paul Taylor presented an overview of geochemical production allocation methods to the Oil and Gas Focus Group.
Merlin Energy Resources Limited is pleased to announce the completion of the landmark PIP-PAD IS16/04 project “The Standard Stratigraphic Nomenclature of Offshore Ireland: An Integrated Lithostratigraphic, Biostratigraphic and Sequence Stratigraphic Framework”.
Learn how geochemical fingerprinting can provide a cost effective solution to evaluate well integrity from our Principal Geochemist, Paul Taylor.
Creating robust well to seismic ties is a crucial yet unloved workflow which must be performed at the start of any seismic interpretation project. The value added to a project by having a confident set of well-seismic ties cannot be understated. Continue reading to learn more about this important workflow..
In this digital age vast quantities of data are generated and stored on company systems. With even the most robust filing systems in place, dark and unstructured data builds up and knowledge is effectively “lost”. Keywise is a robust, intelligent, in-house Datawise utility to extract keywords and phrases from any collection of files creating knowledge and context to documents.
