Global Exploration Services Limited


Global Exploration Services Limited is a UK-based leading consulting team focused on frontier basin evaluation and on providing technical advice and support to oil and gas exploration ventures world-wide.

Established in 2000, GES has, through its Directors and internationally recognized Associates, a combined oil industry experience extending over 100 petroleum basins. Ray Bate, Andy Carr, Robin French and Enzo Zappaterra bring proven oil company and consulting company expertise to help clients attain a competitive advantage.

Over the past years, GES has provided proprietary and non-exclusive reports on regions of active exploration interest; advised clients on exploration opportunities; assisted in the promotion of license rounds - through initial research and report data presentation; has undertaken seismic interpretation, basin modeling and stratigraphic/biostratigraphic studies in a number of prospective regions.

GES offers a unique basin modeling package (PresRo®) that has been recognised by the petroleum industry as providing a definitive understanding of the hydrocarbon potential of an exploration region.

Through its affiliated company Lacustrine Basin Research Ltd, GES specializes in the dating and interpretation of non-marine (lacustrine) rocks over varied petroleum provinces: Brazil, West Africa, Central Africa, China and Mongolia.

Through its affiliated company Advanced Geochemical Systems Ltd, GES undertakes petroleum geochemical and petroleum system modelling studies on many basins around the world. We are partners in a fundamental research project at Nottingham University UK which has proved that the current kinetic models used by geochemists to model hydrocarbon generation in geological basins cannot be used for this purpose, and need to be replaced by models that obey thermodynamic as well as kinetic laws, e.g. PresRo®.
