Experience

Our primary focus is the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin, although we are capable of providing services anywhere. We have widespread experience throughout the basin on all types of wells including vertical, directional and horizontal wells. MRCL has provided over 25 years of supervision on deep wells in the structurally complex foothills and deep basin.

We have also provided supervision on many critical sour wells, and have been involved in Emergency Response Plan strategies and implementation on these wells.

Technology

Dramatic improvements in drilling operations over time demands the use of new technologies and methods in the way we collect, manage and interpret data in the field.

We are proud to mention that we are the first company to set the standard, that all our wellsite geologists use the latest geo-steering software, out in the field and keep up-to-date the geologic structure model of the formation we are drilling.

McGrath Resources keeps evolving and provides its clients with the latest in digital data capture and presentation. (Download a sample complex horizontal striplog – PDF.) We provide a very thorough and comprehensive Geological Report for each well that summarizes all aspects of the well’s history.

History

Founder and president of McGrath Resource Consulting Limited, Greg McGrath, was granted a Bachelor of Science degree in Geology with Distinction from the University of Alberta in 1975. Greg began his career in the oil industry in 1974 working as a full-time summer student for Imperial Oil Limited. He was assigned to work with various exploration geologists working in the Beaufort Exploration District of Imperial Oil. There he gained valuable insight into many aspects of exploration geology. Greg accepted a full-time position with Imperial Oil in 1975.

From 1975 to late 1979, he acquired experience in exploration geology, reservoir geology, seismic interpretation, basin assessment, and wellsite geology. The resources available at Imperial Oil, along with the chance to work side-by-side with veteran explorationists, and the opportunity to attend many exploration and management courses helped to develop his knowledge and skill as a petroleum geologist.

In 1979 Greg left Imperial Oil and incorporated McGrath Resource Consulting Ltd in Rocky Mountain House, Alberta to provide well site supervision services throughout Western Canada. McGrath Resources began taking on new members in the early 1980’s and continues to maintain a specialized team of wellsite geologists.
