Geochemical Solutions

Geochemical Solutions International  was established in 1998 to provide the oil and gas industry geochemical technology for use in the exploration, production, refining, transportation and marketing of natural hydrocarbon resources. Our objective is to offer focused, cost-effective, technical solutions that address our client’s needs while setting the standard for quality, customer service, and business ethics.

In addition to providing routine technical service in association with high-quality laboratories such as Baseline Resolution Labs, Geochemical Solutions has conducted more than 40 non-exclusive multi-client and/or exclusive proprietary projects for assessment of both offshore and onshore areas in Brazil, Argentina, Peru, Trinidad, the Greater Caribbean and elsewhere in Latin America. These projects, which have been widely subscribed by the energy industry, were designed to evaluate hydrocarbon charge and source characteristics in order to identify petroleum systems and associated risk at the Regional, Basin, Field and Prospect scale. These projects utilized a variety of different approaches including Surface Geochemistry, Remote Sensing, Basin Modeling, Crude Oil, Source Rock and Integrated Studies.


GSI Brasil

GSI Brasil – Since its incorporation in 1999, GSI Brasil Ltda. has been pivotal in allowing its parent company, Geochemical Solutions International, Inc. (GSI), attain a significant market presence in Brazil by conducting non-exclusive, multi-client projects in support of hydrocarbon exploration. GSI Brasil was one of the first companies authorized by the Agencia Nacional do Petroleo (ANP) to collect non-exclusive geochemical data for all Brazilian basins. GSI Brasil continues to conduct studies in Brazil and supplementing the geochemical data base resulting in a portfolio of over 40 projects in diverse technical areas.
