Firmground Pty Ltd is an independent geological consultancy based in Nelson integrating extensive sedimentological, ichnological and borehole-image studies in the development of geological models for exploration, appraisal and development in the Oil and Gas industry. The company is particularly focussed on the sedimentological and ichnological interpretation of core, core calibration with wireline and borehole images, and the construction of field- and basin-scale facies and sequence stratigraphic models for reservoir modelling.
Since Firmground was formed in 2001 due to a growing demand for quality sedimentological work, the company has undertaken numerous projects on basins in Australia, New Zealand and overseas. Firmground is also a world leader in the application of trace-fossil studies or ichnology in petroleum reservoirs. Both managing directors of Firmground; Carl Stark and Fiona Burns, have over 20 years’ experience in the oil and gas industry.
