About Future Geological Technologies, Inc.
Incorporated in 2016 our roots run much deeper than that. Born from a mud logging company & a need for a mass spectrometer provider, FGT’s history starts in 1990 when the Warren Logging Company (WLC) was created. Around 2001, WLC began assisting with field R&D for Fluid Inclusions Technologies, Inc (FIT) & their development of the DQ1000, a portable direct quadrupole mass spectrometer (DQMS). In 2003 WLC became Warren and Christian, Inc. (W&C) & Crown Geochemistry Inc. was formed as a subsidiary of W&C, Inc. to conduct advanced gas analysis services using mass spec technology. W&C and Crown continued together until 2006 when the companies split, Crown Geochemistry continues to operate through today.
Crown continued to lease DQMS from FIT until 2015 until FIT were purchased by Schlumberger. This put Crown in a tough position as Schlumberger had given no indication, that they planned to continue making this equipment available at the time. Looking to take a slightly modified, off the shelf mass spec and combine our proprietary hardware and software to make it oilfield appropriate, the Prospector MS that is used today & Future Geological Technologies Inc. was born.
FGT’s success in the advanced gas analytics field is not only due to the many years and thousands of wells analyzed but the great deal of attention given to the quality control.
Our goal is to provide top of the line direct quadrupole mass spectrometers combined with 30+ years of gas collecting experience for all types of drilling rigs.
In 1991 Jim left the truck leasing business for a career in the industrial automation field. After several years as a sales account rep, he started his own company which designed, built, and marketed industrial automated assembly and inspection equipment to the automotive and furniture business. With the collapse of the automotive industry in 2007, Jim came to western Oklahoma to join Crown Geochemistry as the operations manager and currently is Vice President at Crown.
