Newfoundland and Labrador’s exploration strategy continues to build our knowledge and understanding of the petroleum prospectively of the province’s under-explored basins. Our partnerships with key industry players like TGS, PGS and Beicip-Franlab are critically important to the successful implementation of this strategy. With the extensive high quality modern broadband 2D data and 3D datasets, continued identification and mapping of the Jurassic trends and additional Jurassic structural leads, all of which are demonstrating strong AVO responses, are imaged in the Orphan Basin. Many of these leads are aligning with sea bed coring results showing the captured hydrocarbons in the core are thermogenic in origin.
