Gulf of Mexico: Recent survey illuminates possible postsalt Aeolian sandstone play fairway
February 18, 2017

Spectrum’s geoscience team discuss why the Campeche Escarpment basin, offshore Mexico, is now recognised as an exciting exploration target and how the newly acquired, 2D seismic survey provides seamless broadband seismic coverage across the Gulf of Mexico from the Yucatan Platform to the Perdido fold belt, tying key wells in producing hydrocarbon basins and sampling emerging presalt and postsalt plays.

In 2016, Spectrum completed a long-offset 2D seismic survey offshore Mexico in a collaborative effort with PGS and Schlumberger. The survey provides seamless broadband seismic coverage, across the Gulf of Mexico, from the Yucatan Platform in the southeast to the Perdido fold belt in the northwest, tying key wells in producing hydrocarbon basins and sampling emerging presalt and postsalt plays. The survey comprises a total of 63,000 km of data spanning the Perdido fold belt, Western Ridges, Campeche basin, Yucatan Platform and Campeche Escarpment basin. The survey also ties Spectrum’s eastern GoM Deep Focus, Big Wave, and Cuban seismic programs.
