HGL consults in oil and gas exploration. Our specialism is introducing new ideas, recommending practical and innovative exploration and development policy.

UK onshore is a particular and long-term interest, and in this new site we summarise our conclusions on exploration potential of the northern England Carboniferous basins: we think they have substantial undiscovered gas, and we believe its a resource which should be proved and developed. Cost-effective technology to control carbon is almost with us, and will confirm a significant ongoing role for gas in UK’s energy supply, whilst renewables expand.

We also see an experience shortage appearing in exploration, and we offer some practical support here for recently qualified explorationists tasked with recognising and recommending acreage acquisition and mapping worldwide.
