Herodotus/Levantine Basin - Cyprus - 2008

CYP 2008 2D GeoStreamer

Essential 2D coverage for prospecting in Cyprus’ offshore exploration acreage
Website Map for Survey MC2D-CYP2008
The 2D survey covers all licensed and unlicensed exploration blocks in Cyprus and the data coverage enables the regional assessment of hydrocarbon potential and can be used to rank the designated exploration blocks.
The Aphrodite field and other play types have been defined including sub-salt structures with Miocene sandstone reservoirs of distant Nile Delta sediments and stratigraphic traps. The Herodotus Basin and Eratosthenes are considered frontier plays in Pliocene or pre-Messinian carbonate successions.
Acquired in cooperation with the Cypriot Ministry the high quality GeoStreamer survey provides seismic clarity in this underexplored region with limited well information.
