GGRE is all about the rocks!  The letters GGRE represent GEOLOGY, GEOPHYSICS & RESERVOIR ENGINEERING. Any project the team at GGRE work on it all starts with understanding these disciplines and then integrating the range of uncertainty that the subsurface brings, to all other technical, commercial and environmental challenges. Working in an agile, collaborative and iterative manner, finding opportunities in challenges and delivering cost effective solutions is the result.

GGRE was first incorporated in Singapore in January 2011 as GGRE Asia Pte. Ltd. (201102710N) and then moved to Malaysia in May 2016, incorporating in Miri, Sarawak as Integrated GGRE Asia Sdn. Bhd. (1189341-M).  It is a company which brings a strong technical, commercial and subsurface led focus to finding and derisking opportunities, whether it is a CCS, CCUS, EOR, EGR, New Venture, Exploration, Production Optimisation or Field Development/Redevelopment Project. The company is also PETRONAS & PETROS licensed and has approved SWEC codes for Integrated Studies such as FDP, FFR, block reviews, reserve assessments along with Static & Dynamic Reservoir Modeling services and Geological Analysis while drilling services.

The Directors & Associates bring an entrepreneurial spirit, a wealth of experience and a track record for delivering projects across South East Asia and Globally.  We are also passionate about the environment and finding commercially viable solutions to reduce the carbon footprint of our industry.
