Herodotus Basin - Cyprus - 2016

CYP Blk 6 and 10 3D GeoStreamer®

Essential for offshore exploration and prospecting in Block 6 and 10
Website Map for Survey MC3D-CYP2016
Designed to identify exploration well locations, this survey is essential for prospecting in Block 6 and 10. Located at the intersection of Eratosthenes Seamount with the Herodotus and Levant Basins, it provides insight into the broader geological development in the eastern Mediterranean.
Large presence of Cretaceous to Miocene carbonates on top of the Eratosthenes continental block and its nearby satellite structures (Zohr analogues). Clastic reservoir potential elsewhere with turbidite systems derived from the Nile.
This modern 3D survey using GeoStreamer technology and long streamers was acquired in cooperation with the Cypriot Ministry of Energy. The survey is an invaluable tool for improving regional knowledge and understanding.
