Talk Description
Over 5000 offshore ocean floor cores have been taken from the Atlantic
region of Canada. These cores are preserved and date back to the 1970's but
were never analyzed for hydrocarbons. A selection of cores dating from 2011
back to 2001 were sampled to determine if hydrocarbon signal in detectable
quantifies can be found on some of these cores. If so the scope of the
project can be expanded. Any information gained from the analysis can than
be used to help guide additional exploration efforts in areas where very
little exploration has occurred to date.
