Guyana MC2D 2D GeoStreamer

PGS offers 12,542 km of long offset GeoStreamer MC2D seismic covering the Guyana Basin
Website Map for Survey Guyana MC2D
This survey provides a modern, comprehensive seismic address of the Guyana Deep Sub-Basin.
Potential across the basin is believed to exist in stratigraphic targets within Tertiary and Cretaceous turbidite sandstones basin floor fan systems analogous to those proven in Angola and Sierra Leone. Cenomanian-Turonian deep marine shales of the Canje Formation are considered the primary source.
