Established in 1983, IGI Ltd is a petroleum geochemical consultancy and producer of geochemical software. Operating worldwide, the company offer the following services to the petroleum industry:
- Consultancy: geochemical interpretation and basin & petroleum systems modelling project work
- Training Courses: a range of training courses on petroleum geochemistry & basin modelling, and field trips
- Data and Reports: a suite of geochemical databases/reports for various petroleum-producing regions
- Software: specialist programs for collating, storing, quality assuring and interpreting geochemical data
Although single client proprietary studies form the backbone of the company's activities, IGI has contributed to a number of highly successful multi-client reports in co-operation with other specialist consultancies.
IGI advises on, and interprets, geochemical data, but does not provide analytical services - although we work with several service companies who provide geochemical analyses. We routinely compile and quality assure geochemical databases for individual clients, and provide multi-client databases of publicly available geochemical data.
IGI has developed and marketed a unique geochemical and interpretation software package (p:IGI), and an extensive browsable petroleum geochemistry manual (ig.NET), and is developing a unique geochemical data management solution (Metis).
With a staff of around thirty, IGI have two offices: the geochemistry & basin modelling consultancy and administrative staff are based in a rural setting just outside Bideford in North Devon, whilst the software office is in the city of Birmingham.
