Our Objective

Our Strategy

Gastem’s strategy is to acquire, explore and develop new and prospective areas with a high level impact potential on a first mover basis. In order to reduce exploration risks and to increase technical input, Gastem will, when it is advantageous, work with exploration partners ( Pro-Bel GroupField Eagle Inspection Software, Calcium Chloride Supplier ).

The company has developed a strong full time geology and geophysics group composed of 6 qualified professionals and an experienced support staff. Outside specialised consultants on a project basis also participate on most projects. Environmental and community concerns receive the closest attention.

Gastem’s main focus is to develop commercial production of the Utica Shale formations in Quebec and New York State as well as exploring the world class potential conventional structures of the Magdalen Islands and the Magdalen Basin in Quebec. Gastem was the first to target the Quebec Utica Shale formation when it drilled and cored two wells on the Yamaska permit in 2007.
