Oil and gas industry

RPS provides laboratory services capable of providing the highest quality sample preparations for biostratigraphy, chemical stratigraphy and reservoir geology for oil and gas operators.  The scale of the operation ensures we can undertake large projects in the minimum time-frame.   In addition, we have the necessary equipment (including portable fume cupboards and portable chemical stratigraphy instruments) and our technicians have undergone the necessary extensive training to provide a range of sample preparations at wellsite; be it onshore or offshore exploration, appraisal or development wells.  Such services help in determining casing points, setting core, to aid directional drilling or determining T.D.   We have the necessary logistical experience to undertake such work in remote localities worldwide, be it the West of Shetlands, the eastern Seaboard of Canada or along the South Atlantic Margin.

Our laboratory has been comprehensively audited by many operating companies, such as BP, Shell and Equinor, with the results establishing the RPS as a leading provider of laboratory services within the oil and gas sector.  The laboratory has an enviable 100% safety record at wellsite  and is underpinned by a comprehensive HSE management system.  We operate within ISO 90001 and 14001 accreditation.   

Our laboratory services include

  • Palynological preparation – the extraction of palynomorphs such as dinoflagellate cysts, pollen, spores and algae.
  • Kerogen preparation – the extraction of the organic material
  • Micropalaeontological preparation – the extraction of microfossils, such as foraminifera, ostracods and radiolaria.
  • Nannopalaeontology – the extraction of calcareous nannofossils such as coccoliths and coccospheres
  • Chemical stratigraphy – the preparation of XRF and ICP samples through describing, washing, drying, picking and crushing
  • Heavy Mineral preparation – the extraction of heavy mineral grains, using heavy liquid separation techniques
