Corporate Statement

“Historically, Getech generated 90+% of income from the oil & gas sector, whereas this proportion now stands at 66% as new demand for our services across a much broader corporate landscape increases. This demand for our services is being driven by the energy transition to clean energy, as companies need to locate new materials and find new sources of energy. They also need our data to know where to look for them underground.

 

According to a non-profit net zero tracker, 91% of the global economy is now covered by net zero pledges by corporates. Government commitments globally have further boosted the market led by the US Inflation Reduction Act and EU Green Deal Industrial Plan, reinforcing the ever-growing demand for subsurface expertise.

 

There is no line of business that will remain unaffected by climate or energy challenges and Getech is well-positioned to assist, providing its expertise. Getech’s competitive edge comes from spending the last 30 years meticulously collecting data, refining analytics, testing hypotheses and building relationships. We use AI and machine learning in our work, but our core strengths lie in our unique data and exceptional team with the knowledge and vision to use that data to address specific energy challenges.” – Richard Bennett, Executive Chairman
