Gulf of Mexico Offshore
Since the completion of our Phase 1 project, operators have continued to explore and appraise new deepwater reservoirs. Some of these include Shenandoah, Heidelberg, Gila, Tiber, Rydberg, Leon, Dantzler, Who Dat, Delta House, Big Bend, Gunflint Moccasin, Samurai, Hadrian, Lucius, Caesar, Tonga, Julia, Big Foot, Logan and others.
Consequently, our Phase 2 project will entail updating the Deepwater GOM database to include cores from new discoveries and future discoveries. Some of these will no doubt include even deeper drilling depths and other stratigraphic horizons. Also, with the opening of Mexico there is a possibility of extending the project into Mexican deepwater areas.
Each participating company will be required to contribute either existing or new conventional core and/or rotary sidewall cores for analysis and inclusion into the study. All participating companies will share in the project results and interpretations.
The main objective of the project is to provide operators with critical reservoir characterization and engineering data and interpretations directed at the exploration and exploitation of deepwater GOM reservoirs. Specifically, the objectives are as follows:
