Cuba Re-launches Offshore Oil Exploration

New PSTM data from BGP reveals significant exploration potential of the Cuba Exclusive Economic Zone (CEEZ). The section below shows a series of structural traps in the thrust belt of the CEEZ, which have favourable reservoir and seal assemblage. The newly drilled oil discovery near this area has proved its potential. In this section, a reef is clearly indicated and there is also a flat spot reflection, which probably indicates the existence of hydrocarbons.

With these new understandings and discoveries in this area, it is time to take a fresh look at the CEEZ.

Seismic Foldout from the Cuba Exclusive Economic Zone (CEEZ)

This seismic section was taken from a two-part BGP foldout from GEO ExPro Vol. 15, No. 6. You can view the second seismic foldout, taken from Madagascar, here: Oil and Gas Potential in Madagascar: The West Morondava Basin.
