The Mexico, US & Surrounds Multi-Client Basin Analysis Report provides a regional play-based evaluation of the Gulf of Mexico and surrounds, based on the interpretation of published and unpublished data.
The Gulf of Mexico (GOM) is one of the most prominent offshore exploration regions and has become known for its salt associated discoveries and mega oil finds. The GOM has a long and complex depositional history and is extensive in size, attracting explorers from around the world. Abundant salt pillows and diapirs populate the subsurface resulting in a need for thorough and modern processing sequences to obtain accurate seismic imaging. The GOM contains multiple thick source rock intervals resulting in multiple petroleum systems throughout the region. The area continues to remain one of the most successful exploration provinces despite maturity as the drive for understanding the complex area and the hunt for the large variety of undiscovered play types continues.
Utilising a multidisciplinary approach with emphasis on geology, geophysics (seismic, magnetics and gravity) and geochemistry, a considerable part of this Study is devoted to assessing two principal risks identified in this area: hydrocarbon charge and reservoir presence.
The Study has been complied into a regional geological framework and is a powerful analysis tool for managing ongoing evaluation and acreage releases within the area.
