MGPalaeo (formally Morgan-Goodall Palaeo) are leading geological consultants specializing in palynology, and have been servicing the oil and gas industry since 1983. Our palynological zonation scheme is the industry standard across Australia.
Latest News: August 8, 2018: Last Chance for the Vulcan!
Our Vulcan Sub-basin core workshop is filling up fast but it’s not to late to book your spot. The deadline for signing up is the 15th of August so contact us now and join us on a fascinating journey through 30 cores spanning the Late Cretaceous Puffin Formation to the Triassic plays of the Pollard Formation.
To add to this, our Vulcan Sub-basin Comprehensive Core Data Set is also now complete, just in time for the workshop. This mammoth study covers 1.6 kilometres of core from 63 wells spanning an area from Crux 1 in the South-West to Ludmilla 1 in the North-East.
All cored wells within the Vulcan Sub-basin have been reviewed, with more than 200 pages of core descriptions and palaeogeographic maps, and close to 2000 RCA measurements plotted against grain size, lithology, lithofacies and depofacies. Contact us to find out more.
Latest News: August 2, 2018: New Triassic Datasets for the Bedout & Beagle Sub-basins
Congratulations to Quadrant Energy and Carnarvon Petroleum on their staggering discovery of more oil and gas in the Dorado 1 well. This discovery further highlights the importance of the Bedout Sub-basin for oil and gas exploration.
In 2015, MGPalaeo built the most comprehensive palynological dataset available for the Triassic in this area, reanalysing every available sample and carrying out additional infills from Phoenix 1, Phoenix 2, Keraudren 1, Bedout 1, La Grange 1, Bruce 1 and Poissonnier 1.
Based in Perth (Western Australia), MGPalaeo can provide high-resolution biostratigraphic and geological services on a local, basin, and regional scale. This includes a range of geochronological disciplines (microfossils, nannofossils, palynology, chemostratigraphy, and radiometric dating), either in-house or via our partners. We also work closely with universities across Australia, helping to train the next generation of palynologists.
MGPalaeo operates a specialized biostratigraphic laboratory, and can provide standard, hot shot, and coal sample processing to the highest standards. Our laboratory staff works closely with our biostratigraphers to ensure the best quality samples are produced.
MGPalaeo also offers a comprehensive range of Sedimentological services, including core descriptions, wireline log interpretation, image log interpretation, rock typing, workshops and more.
Our geological and stratigraphical consultants can work with you, at your office or ours, to help develop/refine your project in the best way possible. Please contact us to discuss your requirements or ideas.
