Los Cayos 2D

3 120 km MC2D seismic data located in the Los Cayos area of Northern Caribbean Colombia
Website Map for Survey MCS Colombia Los Cayos Production MC2D
Optimally images the flanks and crest of the Colombian Nicaragua Rise infilling legacy 2D seismic coverage.
Play types are structural or stratigraphic closures sourced from various Eocene and Cretaceous kitchens.
These data maximize regional coverage and have been integrated into an available detailed structural and stratigraphic interpretation focused on hydrocarbon prospectivity.
