Uruguay indicators contract to renew offshore seismic surveying for oil and fuel
Norwegian oil and fuel exploration seismic information firm PGS has signed an settlement with Uruguay’s state oil firm ANCAP to reprocess over 11 000 km of present 2D strains of varied vintages, making use of the newest seismic imaging strategies.
This rejuvenation will present new, reprocessed 2D seismic that can tie with PGS’ present 15 600 sq. km MultiClient 3D survey, masking the Punta del Este and Pelotas basins, PGS mentioned.
The Punta del Este basin develops within the western a part of the offshore of Uruguay close to the border with Argentina. It was fashioned by a failed rift construction within the Late Jurassic, producing a northwest-southeast (NW–SE) fault pattern.
The Pelotas basin develops within the japanese a part of the offshore of Uruguay and extends by means of a number of kilometers into offshore Brazil. It was fashioned in the course of the Early Cretaceous with the following opening of the Atlantic Ocean, forming a NE–SW fault pattern.
New regional horizon interpretation will delineate the variable structural framework and timing of faulting between these basins, which resulted in a diversified depositional historical past in the course of the Jurassic, Cretaceous, and Cenozoic, PGS mentioned.
The world affords an abundance of exploration alternatives. Quite a few clastic-channel and fan techniques, plus carbonate build-ups type stacked performs all through the Paleozoic to Tertiary part. Most of those performs have but to be examined. Fluid inclusions of oil and fuel, fuel chimneys and BSRs recognized offshore point out a working petroleum system with predicted supply rock intervals within the Paleozoic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous, PGS added.
