The Pearl River Mouth Basin, a proven hydrocarbon province has been the subject of renewed upstream interest. The majority of this interest has centered upon the Northern Depressions of the Pearl River Mouth Basin.
To facilitate this new study COHNE has provided a substantial database of fifteen (15) wells and c. 10,000 km of seismic, of which c. 3,000 line km has been reprocessed.
The main technical objectives of this study are to provide a geological model of the Pearl River Mouth Basin, with emphasis on the deepwater Southern Depressions. The geological model will provide an improved basis for paleogeographic, structural, and hydrocarbon evaluation, and functioning of petroleum systems. This will be achieved through the following approach:
Three (3) bound interpretive volumes are provided. These volumes will be fully illustrated with seismic sections, analytical data and regional data in the form of maps, isopachs and cross sections. In addition, all laboratory data will be appended to the final report (Volume IV) in digital format. An HTML browser version of the report is also available.
