Tela and Mosquitia Basins - Honduras - 2009

MCS Honduras 2D GeoStreamer

6 180 km of MC2D seismic data located in the Tela and Mosquitia Basins offshore Honduras
Website Map for Survey MCS Honduras MC2D
Provides a modern, comprehensive seismic address of the Tela and Mosquitia Basins offshore Honduras in water depths between 20 and 3,000 meters.
Evidence of a working thermogenic Tertiary hydrocarbon system in the Mosquitia Basin includes flow of 38 API Middle Eocene oil from Well Main Cape 1 and documentation of a high-quality Middle Eocene source rock interval in well Coco Marina 1.
