GeoScience Ltd is an independently owned consultancy providing sub-surface earth science services to the oil & gas and geothermal industries. The company was founded in 1985 by members of staff from the UK Hot Dry Rock geothermal research programme in Cornwall and is still located in the county. We have worked on conventional and non-conventional geothermal systems around the world, advising developers, investors, governments and regulators on both power and heat projects.
From its inception until May 2020 we were a Delivery Partner on the United Downs Deep Geothermal Power project, which aims to be the first commercial geothermal electricity generator in the UK. We pioneered the use of shallow ground source heat pump systems in the UK for the heating and cooling of commercial and domestic buildings and have carried out more than 2,000 installations. We began to develop geomechanics and geology services for the oil & gas sector in the 1990s and this is now the major part of our business. We have completed hundreds of studies for new and mature fields all over the world, using data from thousands of wells, and saving millions of dollars for many of our clients.
