Sustainable Solutions, Fueled By Organic Geochemistry

Organic geochemistry is a crucial field in the petroleum and mining industries. It studies the organic compounds and processes that impact resource formation, extraction, and environmental considerations.

Where Organic Geo Chemistry Meets Energy & Minerals


Source Rock Analysis

Assessing the potential of source rocks to generate hydrocarbons or mineral deposits through organic matter analysis, thermal maturity determination, and geochemical characterization.


Biomarker Analysis

Identifying and analyzing biomarkers (organic compounds derived from biological sources) to trace the origin, maturity, and migration pathways of petroleum or the presence of specific minerals.


Organic Petrology

Studying the microscopic examination and characterization of organic matter within rocks and sediments to understand depositional environments, organic facies, and thermal maturity.

About Us

From Nature’s Bounty to Responsible Extraction

After working 3 years in the offshore Gulf of Mexico for Shell Oil in their Exploration and Production office in New Orleans, 13 years with Amoco Production Company in their Tulsa Research Center, and 23 years with the United States Geological Survey in their Denver Central Energy Resources Team, Mike retired and with his 40+ years of field and laboratory experience in petroleum geology and geochemistry started Lewan Geo Consulting Corporation. Mike’s applied research has earned him accolades from the American Association of Petroleum Geologists with the AAPG distinguished lecturer award, George Matson best paper award, and Robert Berg Outstanding Researcher Award and awards from the Rocky Mountain Association of Geologists (RMAG) including best paper award and outstanding scientist award. With this diverse and extensive internationally recognized expertise in the origin of petroleum, Lewan Geo Consulting Corporation can provide clients with innovative, up-to-date evaluations and new insightful interpretations of geological/geochemical data in evaluating petroleum systems, plays, and prospects.
