Insights into the Mediterranean Sea

Gain insights into the Mediterranean Sea with newly acquired 2D data and reimaged data in advance of future license rounds. This regional framework ties all of the major basins in the area and provides deep imaging essential to understanding new exploration plays.

Highlights from the preliminary geological interpretation of the composite Mediterranean data that provide significant implications to petroleum systems across the region include:

  • Advancement of our understanding of the original NW-SE rift direction of the opening of the Tethyan Sea
  • Recognition of regional-scale reactivation of early-rift structures across the whole Mediterranean area
  • Identification of significantly greater thicknesses of sediment across the whole Mediterranean, in particular across the Libyan offshore and Eastern Mediterranean, than previously recognized
