Our History in Words
The GETAMME LABORATORIES (NIGERIA) LIMITED, also called GETAMME LABS is a member of the GETAMME GROUP of companies which started business operations in Nigeria in 1996 initially under the trading name, GETAMME GEOCHEM, the consultancy division of the now rested GETAMME (NIGERIA) LIMITED. For many years, GETAMME GEOCHEM provided Geochemical Analytical services to leading E&P companies in Nigeria but as a result of expansion of business and strategic alliances with other local and international service providers, the company’s portfolio extended into geochemical/environmental consultancies, training/capacity building, etc., thus necessitating start-up of new companies to take charge of specialist areas for greater operational efficiency.
Hence, the incorporation of GETAMME LABS to oversee the laboratory aspects, GETAMME GEOCHEM (NIGERIA) LIMITED to handle Petroleum Exploration and Production(E&P) consultancies in Geochemistry/Geology and related disciplines such as environmental/remediation studies, basin modelling, flow assurance, etc., and OIL & GAS ACADEMY LIMITED to provide short and long term training for human capacity building. No doubt, there is overlap of functions and it is recognized that the respective companies have to work closely together for synergy.
The present Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of the Group of Companies is Chukwuemeka M. Ekweozor PhD, FNAPE, FNMGS formerly Professor of Organic Geochemistry at the University of Ibadan, Nigeria.
