Merlin Energy Resources and Quintessa have agreed to form a strategic alliance to identify and develop joint business opportunities based on their extensive experience in characterising the subsurface for clients in multiple industries since the 1990’s.

Both Merlin and Quintessa are employee-owned companies and are members of the Employee Ownership Association. They share common values including a genuine passion for their work and a strong commitment to supporting the transition to low carbon energy.

The alliance brings together two groups of technical professionals with deep expertise in geosciences, data management & analysis, decision support, mathematical & geochemical modelling and software development skills.

Quintessa and Merlin will combine their skills to support clients in a range of areas including carbon capture and storage (CCS), geothermal energy utilisation, hydrogen production and storage, natural gas storage, and the decommissioning of oil and gas production facilities.
