frontier exploration licence 4/14
mapped closure presents vertically stacked targets.
Results from work on Licence 4/14, as well as regional work, indicate plays at three stratigraphic levels, including 3 leads in the Lowermost Cretaceous Pinch-out, Lower Cretaceous fan complex as well as a Lower Tertiary play.
Stacked targets have also been mapped at Lower Tertiary and Lower Cretaceous levels: Substantial area of structural closure forming a trap at Lower Cretaceous level against the major basin boundary fault. Early Tertiary eastward updip thinning and stratigraphic pinchout of interpreted sand-prone succession. Mounded, prograding Aptian-Albian basin-edge fan with updip shale drape / trap. Basal Cretaceous target horizons pinch out through onlap onto the basin margin. Drill depths of up to 3,000m to the Lower Cretaceous marker in approximately 1,000 m water depth. Thick untested reservoirs derived from an easterly source (i.e. Celtic Platform).
