Abstract: "Is there a new elephant hiding in the Herodotus Basin?"

A new area of 80,000 sq.km is now open for exploration offshore the Western Desert of Egypt. To increase understanding of the petroleum systems, identify the play types and define future exploration blocks, new regional geophysical data is crucial. The area can be divided into a continental margin where the North African onshore Matruh Basin extends offshore, and the deep water Herodotus Basin. Approximately 5,000 line km of new geophysical data is tentatively planned to be acquired during the first quarter of 2016. Areas to be covered and line locations are being planned in collaboration with EGAS and companies prepared to explore this frontier area.
