Employees 6–20
Headquarters Stokenchurch, England, United Kingdom
Silicon MicroGravity is a technology platform-based company focused on developing innovative technologies where gravity can be applied to create value. The company has developed a unique high-performance, ultra-sensitive MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems) resonant accelerometer. Though incredibly small, it has a projected resolution of approximately one billionth of the Earth’s gravity, and can be applied across a large number of industries, including: CO2 storage and sequestration monitoring, oil and gas surveillance, groundwater management, civil-geotechnical engineering, mining engineering, and even the defense and space industries. The company’s current geophysical technology focus has the potential to disrupt oil and gas production practices through CO2 storage and sequestration that can achieve major cost efficiencies while helping to meet operators’ social, safety, and environmental goals. Silicon MicroGravity is also developing a high-performance MEMS rate gyro technology that will have applications from stabilisation to tactical and inertial navigation grades. When used in combination, gyros and accelerometers form important components for inertial navigation, such as guiding autonomous vehicles.

Notable Achievements

  • Working alongside government bodies such as the Petroleum council of Canada to implement carbon storage/sequestration projects globally, Silicon MicroGravity's environmental footprint reaches 90+ countries.
  • Working in collaboration with The Oil & Gas Technology Centre (OGTC) on the UK based deployments to fast-track emerging technology capable of accelerating carbon transition towards net zero.
  • Director and CEO, Jez, has +25 years leadership - management experience, authored 35+ academics papers, and contributed to four book contributions on oilfield applications.
