So what are Super Basins?

Super basins are the world’s most richly endowed petroleum basins each with at least 5 BBOE produced and more than 5 BBOE left to produce. With multiple source rocks, multiple plays, and well-established infrastructure, the top 25 global basins hold potential for 100s of BBOE future resources thanks to ongoing technological innovations.
