About Us

Sirius Exploration Geochemistry was incorporated in 2013 as the natural evolution of Douglas Waples’s 30+ year history as a consultant in petroleum geochemistry and basin modeling. Dr. Waples continues as the principal scientist in Sirius, but Sirius also includes a number of associates and partners who work with Dr. Waples on specific projects. Sirius provides normal exploration consulting services in geochemical interpretation and basin modeling; work for government entities seeking to understand or better promote their own acreage; development of exploration-oriented software such as Novva and ORFA; in-house training and public courses; research projects in collaboration with clients; and multiclient speculative studies in both geochemistry and basin modeling in domestic US and foreign basins. We are eager to discuss a fit between your needs and our capabilities, and are very happy to tailor our projects to best meet your needs.
