About Future Geological Technologies, Inc.

About

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 Mission

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.
