Geo-Microbial Technologies (GMT)


Geo-Microbial Technologies, Inc., (GMT) is a privately held company located in Ochelata, Oklahoma, well known in the oil and gas industry for its research in petroleum microbiology and for hydrocarbon microseepage surveys.
GMT has more than 20 years of experience conducting successful and innovative surface exploration surveys all over the world in geologically and environmentally diverse settings ranging from Asiatic and Mid-east deserts to South American jungles, and from temperate US grasslands to the polar Arctic coastal plains..
The principal strength of GMT s soil gas and microbial surveys is the low cost, flexibility in the field, minimal environmental impact, and the value as a direct indicator of hydrocarbons.
GMT s comparison of survey results with the results of subsequent drilling indicates that 80-95% of wells drilled in negative geochemical anomalies resulted in dry holes, whereas 60-85% of wells drilled in positive geochemical anomalies resulted in commercial petroleum discoveries.
