​​Basin Studies

Field Geo Services and its partners are well known to maintain the highest standards for geochemical analysis.  This applies to routine screening runs as well as the most sophisticated analysis.  A number of advanced analytical and interpretation methods have originally been developed by FGS and partners.  Our goal is to deliver quality products that provide the client with solutions to their most ambitious demands.


Example of 1-D basin model output to determine timing for hydrocarbon generation for a well on the Colorado Plateau.
