The Merlin team got out and about in the fresh air around Colwall and went geocaching one evening after work. Continue reading to find out how we got on..
One Footstep over the Iapetus Suture? Read about John's trip to the Isle of Man and the wonderful geology he encountered there..
I don’t know about you but one of the most enjoyable and rewarding aspects of working in geoscience for me is actually in getting it wrong! Where would the fun be if things always turned out just as we predicted? The mantra ‘expect the unexpected’ comes to mind when dealing with sub-surface data. The flexible geoscientist recognises the flaws in their data and uses their geological nous to fill in the gaps and to consider what might be, rather than what the data seems to be showing them. This spectacular example illustrates the point and, through a seismic re-processing exercise, happily delivers the ‘big reveal’. Read on..
On 3rd-6th June Eleanor Oldham was lucky enough attend the 81st Annual EAGE Conference & Exhibition in London, with the theme '‘Embracing change – creativity for the Future’. Read on to learn about Eleanor's take-homes from the conference..
Earlier this year Merlin held an inaugural New Ventures brainstorming session, where all staff from the G&G consultancy and Datawise divisions were given ‘soap box’ time to present their innovative ideas. These sessions bring the creative instincts to the fore and have delivered a number of New Venture concepts to take forward in 2019 and beyond. So watch this space!
The Digital Transformation Summit, held 21st-22nd May in Edinburgh, brought together expertise from Oil & Gas, Academia, Aerospace and other key industry sectors.

Geocaching is a worldwide game which involves locating hidden items using GPS coordinates. Using either a hand-held GPS unit or a smartphone app you can search for caches hidden in your local area. To learn more about Geocaching and how you can take part yourself, continue reading..
Does the OGA’s 2016 high-resolution 2D seismic provide the crucial master key in unlocking hidden potential?
However you say it, the world’s geology does not see political borders the same way us humans do. Rocks are inherently less territorial! At Merlin, we have increasingly recognised the value in transferring knowledge across political boundaries.

Offshore Ireland has recently become a region of significant hydrocarbon exploration interest, sparked by the Atlantic Margin Licensing Rounds in 2011 and 2015, as a result of which, licences were awarded across the Porcupine, Slyne, Rockall and Goban Spur basins. Merlin have been awarded a project to define a standard stratigraphic nomenclature on behalf of the Government of Ireland.
