    A new Palaeogene dinoflagellate cyst stratigraphy from offshore West Greenland has been described based on the strata from the Hellefisk-1, Ikermiut-1, Kangâmiut-1, Nukik-1, Nukik-2 and Qulleq-1 wells. Twenty-one palynological intervals are defined from the Late Eocene to the late Early Paleocene. This stratigraphy has been correlated with a new microfossil zonation and previous established North Sea zonations. The stratigraphy and well correlation are based on last appearance datum events and abundances of stratigraphically important species from 355 samples, 148 of which are sidewall core samples. A major middle Eocene hiatus spanning the early Lutetian and a major Early Paleocene hiatus spanning the Late Santonian, Late Cretaceous to the early Danian have been recognised from the offshore deposits.
