A preliminary 3D geological model was constructed in order to explore gas potential at Arkalochori, central Crete. The 3D model concerns shallow Neogene sediments. Apart from geological data we employed borehole and VES measurements as well as pseudo-boreholes in an effort to construct litho-stratigraphic model. This model honors the main structural characteristics and the spatial distribution of Neogene deposits, specifically those that belong to Tefelion Group. A 3D lithostratigraphical model in combination with sedimentological observations could assist in delineating possible locations of gas accumulation so that they could be examined thoroughly in the future.
