PTTEP announced in May its offshore Sirung-1 exploration well as an oil and gas discovery, intersecting a column of more than 100m in Miocene clastic reservoirs, in the shallow waters off the coast of Sarawak.
With drilling, coring and logging operations now complete on ReconAfrica's PEL 73 6-2 well, clear evidence of a working conventional petroleum system has been shown in the Kavango Basin, onshore Namibia.
The combination of existing OBN technology, innovative survey design, and DM-FWI technology is a real step-change in high-resolution model building for oil and gas exploration, from the shallow to the deep, as proven in this recent acquisition survey in the Gulf of Mexico.
Mars is home to the solar systems’ largest volcano, its deepest canyon, and it has thick sedimentary rock formations that are mind bogglingly old. Join Dr Neil Hodgson to look at the view you get from the shoulders of NASA as we explore the geology of the Red Planet in one of our Geotalks webinars. Webinar recording is included in this article.

For over three billion years the surface of Mars has been sculpted by the gentle winds of a thin atmosphere, volcanism and meteorite impacts. Understanding this geology is the key in the search for life.
