In 2010, the International Scientific Consortium was set up. The key objectives of the Consortium included: development of a new tectonic model of the Black Sea Depression and adjacent territories, identification of the major milestones of the basin development in the Para-Tethys System of the pre-Cenozoic era and study of the modern geodynamics of the Black Sea Basin as a whole. The Scientific Consortium was chaired by JVC Soyuzmorgeo, Russia, the internationally recognized Marine Analytical Center. The key Consortium participants included major specialized research centers from various countries of the Black Sea Region: Institute of Oceanology of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (Bulgaria), Geoecomar Institute (Romania), Black Sea State Regional Geological Enterprise (PrichernomorGRGP), Ukraine, Middle East Technical University, Turkey (METU). Among the members of the Consortium there were also some regional marine survey companies and a number of oil companies. The investigations of scientific Consortium and geologists from different countries were combined together for creation of Black Sea geological model. The first researches were done 30 years ago and certainly the new obtained data allow to improve Black Sea basin model with new tectonic elements and modern geodynamics.
