RPS Energy has worked in almost every petroleum basin in the world, undertaking projects ranging from niche specialist work to large multi-disciplinary E&P studies. This mix of experience and expertise comes from a highly-experienced staff and associates, comprising a wide range of surface and sub-surface disciplines.

The in-house team of biostratigraphers have over 200 years cumulative global experience, with particular expertise in the North Sea, West of Shetlands, the West African margin, the Southern Atlantic, North Africa, East Africa, Latin America, Eastern Europe/Black Sea, the Caspian and the Indian sub-continent. We provide detailed well-log sequence stratigraphic interpretations (the recognition of maximum flooding surfaces, sequence boundaries etc.) on wells analysed, offer wellsite biostratigraphic services (including acid and acid-free palynological analysis) and have comprehensive in-house laboratory facilities.
