Talk Description
The last 10 years of Exploration offshore Guyana, Suriname and French Guiana demonstrate that, for success in finding "Super Basins", Explorers need many tools in their armoury. Here are a few:
  • Using the complexities of Plate Tectonics/Rifting to understand the interplay between - and timings of - the formation of basins, the input of reservoir, seal and trap facies into those basins.
  • Applying seismic stratigraphy to describe the chronostratigraphic history of a basin, and develop gross depostional environment mapping.
  • To model the suite of potential petroleum generating source formations to describe their maturation and petroleum expulsion.
  • To produce high quality seismic indicators such as Impedance and AVO images.
And there are no "short cuts" and there's too much 'lazy thinking' (IMHO!!).
