Pre-Drill Seismic workflow for petroleum systems modelling in frontier deepwater basins: implications for prospectivity offshore MSGBC

14:30 - 14:50

  • A case study from the deep water of The Gambia, highlighting positive indications for the potential of a working hydrocarbon system
  • Highlighting prospectivity and potentially de-risking other parts of the MSGBC Basin
  • Acknowledging a paucity of well data within frontier deep and ultra-deepwater basins – how can high-quality
  • seismic data be used for de-risking the presence and maturity of hydrocarbons in the system
  • Bottom Simulating Reflections (BSRs) can be identified in the shallow section.
  • Assessing temperature and maturity for oil and gas generation and expulsion: Converting a reflection seismic velocity model to thermal conductivity for downward and lateral extension of the shallow geothermal gradients to the bottom of the seismic volume
