The Caribbean......

Undoubtedly, this region has arrived as a key area for future oil and gas exploration.

The discovery of billions of barrels of oil offshore Guyana by ExxonMobil and partners since 2015 has focused the attention of the geological community on the eastern boundary of the Caribbean and South American tectonic plates.

And the recent announcement by EcoPetrol of promising gas discoveries offshore Colombia defines a ‘complete set’ along the southern margin of the Caribbean – Colombia=>Venezuela=>Trinidad=>Guyana.

Which brings us to two questions:

What about the western side of the Caribbean, from Nicaragua round to Jamaica?

And could there be ‘trendology’ from Guyana into the eastern side, into the Tobago Basin and perhaps the Barbados Accretionary Prism (as conjectured in AAPG Memoir 123)?

Our webinar will focus on these two questions!!

Basins across an active transform margin, western Caribbean


Talk Description
....from Jamaica round to Nicaragua

CaribX has been active in this region since 2009 and its predecessor MDOIL since 2003.

Chortis is a major continental tectonic block in the Western Caribbean. Its offshore component stretches some 750 kms. between the coasts of Honduras and Nicaragua to western Jamaica. Some 50 wells were drilled across this terrain up to the early 1980’s with 73% of the wells recording hydrocarbon shows, 5 wells flowed hydrocarbons with several significant source rock penetrations.





In this short presentation I will walk through the basins describing the oils, source rocks and reservoirs of this lightly explored part of the Caribbean.
Chris has been in the upstream business for over 30 years, including time with BP, BG and more recently Black Marlin Energy. A petroleum geochemist, Chris is well-respected for work done in both East Africa and in the greater Caribbean region and has undertaken several geoscientific reviews of the region since 2003. He was a founder of Black Marlin which was sold in 2010 for 100 + mln USD. He is a renowned expert and often speaks at international conferences and seminars on the subject of oil and gas exploration. In addition, he has a track record of finding and securing commercial deals. MSc., BSc., CGeol
