Levantine/Eratosthenes Basin - Cyprus

CYP Blk 8 and 9 3D GeoStreamer

Essential for offshore exploration and prospecting in Block 8 and 9
Website Map for Survey MC3D-CYP2017
Designed to identify exploration well locations, this survey is essential for prospecting in Block 8 and 9. Located at the intersection of the Eratosthenes continental block with the Levant Basin, the survey 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.
