New Caribbean Geophysical Studyon
01 September 2015
An understanding of regional geology is vital for targeted and successful exploration. With this in mind, and with the consent of all Caribbean countries, Geology Without Limits (GWL) will soon commence a new 40,000 line km 2D Pan-Caribe geophysical study. Scheduled to commence in 4Q 2015, long offset reflection seismic, refraction, gravity and magnetic data will all be acquired, integrated and interpreted. First results will be available in January 2016.
The objectives of the study are to provide high quality, deeply imaged exploration seismic data integrated with gravity and magnetic data; to reveal the major elements of the Earth’s crustal architecture; to provide new insights into the evolutionary model of this region; and to offer a regional interpretation which describes the geological history and indicates active petroleum systems.
The survey is being undertaken in co-operation with a number of national scientific institutes and universities, and will be conducted with the support of the governments of the countries involved. Spec Partners Ltd is assisting GWL
