Uruguay indicators contract to renew offshore seismic surveying for oil and gasoline
Norwegian oil and gasoline exploration seismic information firm PGS has signed an settlement with Uruguay’s state oil firm ANCAP to reprocess over 11 000 km of current 2D traces of assorted vintages, making use of the most recent seismic imaging strategies.
This rejuvenation will present new, reprocessed 2D seismic that can tie with PGS’ current 15 600 sq. km MultiClient 3D survey, masking the Punta del Este and Pelotas basins, PGS stated.
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 development.
The Pelotas basin develops within the japanese a part of the offshore of Uruguay and extends by way of a number of kilometers into offshore Brazil. It was fashioned throughout the Early Cretaceous with the following opening of the Atlantic Ocean, forming a NE–SW fault development.
New regional horizon interpretation will delineate the variable structural framework and timing of faulting between these basins, which resulted in a various depositional historical past throughout the Jurassic, Cretaceous, and Cenozoic, PGS stated.
The realm affords an abundance of exploration alternatives. Quite a few clastic-channel and fan methods, plus carbonate build-ups kind stacked performs all through the Paleozoic to Tertiary part. Most of those performs have but to be examined. Fluid inclusions of oil and gasoline, gasoline chimneys and BSRs recognized offshore point out a working petroleum system with predicted supply rock intervals within the Paleozoic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous, PGS added.
