The Barbados Reprocessing project is a multi-client program designed to further improve understanding of the area and to provide insight into the region’s tectonic settings. Located offshore Barbados, this reprocessing project is both an exploration-grade grid and regional geological study using 2D seismic developed to evaluate the resource potential.
Combined with the adjacent SPAN data in Trinidad & Tobago, the project provides an advanced geologic framework of the area’s petroleum systems through a study of the regional distribution of source rocks, thermal history and maturation, and basin-scale architecture, as well as prospect level data for detailed exploration. The program spans the entire margin from 50 m to over 3,000 m water depths and by tying important wells, provides analogs to further improve understanding of this area.
- Provides insight into the Tobago Trough, Barbados Ridge, Barbados Trough forearc basins and the Outer Deformation Front
- Spans the forearc basins from water depths of 50 m to approximately 4,000 m
- Ties existing wells into the regional framework
- Understand the limits of the known petroleum systems
- Over 9,000 km of depth-migrated data
- Reprocessing using 6,000 m offsets and 8-17 sec record length
- Establishes a foundation for a greater understanding of the basin architecture
- Imaged using holistic imaging technology from ION
