About Us

Surtek is a third-generation boutique enhanced oil-recovery (EOR) engineering and lab service provider. Located in Centennial, Colorado (USA). Surtek has deep roots in EOR that link directly to the Marathon EOR group that pioneered the micellar solution techniques known as Chemical EOR.

In 2022 Surtek is committed to preserving the almost lost technical skill set of Reservoir Engineering that is necessary for practical field implementation for EOR, CCUS, and ESG.

Since 1978 Surtek has helped national oil companies, major oil companies, and independents on a wide range of field applications that include conventional, unconventional, and off-shore and on-shore.
