BGES has been serving western Canada’s upstream natural gas industry since 1996. Our portfolio of production optimization and GeoContainment™ solutions has also been customized to meet the needs of tight and shale gas as well as coal bed methane (CBM) productions in BC, Alberta and Saskatchewan.
Because gas has significantly higher mobility in reservoir rocks than oil, GeoContainment™ is crucial for natural gas and CBM production. Rock layers directly above gas reservoir (the caprock) as well as the surface casing must demonstrate adequate integrity in order to prevent the migration of gas or other formation fluids to groundwater sources. BGES offers a variety of services to help ensure efficient and safe natural gas production.
