No other company has a product so well positioned to serve this market. And we're thrilled to have Chris Gorman to run it.  Mr. Gorman knows the European offshore oil and gas market intimately through his years of experience there, and is well suited to lead our efforts."

"The North Sea region and Europe in general are a hotbed of activity," said Chris Gorman, Geoforce's Business Manager for the UK.  "The region has long been a leader in the global oil and gas community through the export of talent, technology, and regulatory influence – so it's a natural fit for Geoforce to have a presence here to directly serve both our existing customer base and new ones that will soon be added."
