PetroStrat Logo Strapline Green

We aim to be the leading global stratigraphic consultancy, helping to shape the future of energy provision by providing clients with a solid scientific foundation for subsurface modelling, enabling strategic and informed decision-making.

PetroStrat has years of in-house experience offering integrated geoscience services on exploration and development acreage around the world. We provide subsurface solutions across biostratigraphy and sedimentology / reservoir geology to:

  • support natural resource exploration
  • develop subsurface understanding and modelling
  • support critical engineering decisions in real time
  • support energy transition initiatives – CCUS, decommissioning and risk management

We bring together the data, analytical services and world leading expertise under one roof to deliver the science that underpins and de-risks subsurface modelling.

We offer full-service palaeontology (micropalaeontology, nannopalaeontology and palynology) together with sedimentology/reservoir geology services (including a comprehensive suite of analytical geological techniques and quantitative petrography).

At PetroStrat, we put the needs of our clients at the forefront of everything we do, offering bespoke services to meet even the most demanding of needs.

Our Mission Statement

PetroStrat Header Mountain Dark Grey Contours Cave
  • To champion integrated geological services, specialising in biostratigraphy and sedimentology. Our goal is to debunk misconceptions that oil-field Palaeontology may be ‘old school’ and develop new applications for fundamental real rock services.

  • To maintain competitive advantage by utilising superior in-house laboratories, employing scientists of the highest calibre and applying fully quantitative methods as standard.
  • To ensure knowledge transfer to our clients, imparting real understanding of the subsurface.
  • To recognise the value of our staff and fulfil ambitions for development and training.
