Through our joint venture Future Geoscience we completed a Carson Basin Non-Exclusive Study which integrates biostratigraphy, chemostratigraphy, isotope stratigraphy and provenance data.

Overview of the Carson Basin Non-Exclusive Study

Recent discoveries in Jurassic and Cretaceous sequences offshore eastern Canada have intensified exploration with new sectors opening to the south‐east of Newfoundland in the Carson Basin (NL01‐SEN) and undrilled Salar Basin (NL02‐SEN). To help evaluate lease options in upcoming licensing rounds, a refined and robust integrated stratigraphic and provenance model have been completed to enable improved play fairway mapping along the south‐eastern margin of the Grand Banks.

This multi‐disciplinary stratigraphic study focuses on 9 wells (listed above) located in or surrounding the Carson Basin, and extending along the South Bank High. In addition, published data from ODP Site 1276A is reviewed and integrated into an upgraded regional stratigraphic framework, calibrated to the latest Geological Timescale (GTS 2016).
