In 1990, Arco International made a technical review of the blocks offered in the Oriente of Ecuador, and offered a bid on Block 10. Arco was successful in its bid, and became operator with a 60 percent interest, and had Agip as partner, with 40 percent.

This month, we further evolve this framework to build a palinspastically quantitative reassembly of continents and continental blocks that were separated during the Mesozoic rifting and subsequent drift in the Gulf of Mexico region -- key features.

Deep water and subsalt plays are the two hottest exploration frontiers in the Gulf of Mexico and searching for structures below the salt in waters thousands of feet deep is the most exciting play with the greatest potential for reward vs. the risk.

One hundred years of petroleum exploration and development in the Los Angeles region have produced a rich legacy of geological and geophysical data -- a legacy that the oil industry has spent billions of dollars to obtain.

Everyone knows Greenland has oil. But the exploration areas are so frontier they make Dodge City look like the middle of Manhattan, and so far no one has caught a glimpse of commercial Greenland production. So who will be first?

VG Abstract

The Betic hinterland, in the westernmost Mediterranean, constitutes a unique example of a stack of metamorphic units. Using a three-dimensional model for the crustal structure of the Betics-Rif area this talk will address the role of crustal flow simultaneously to upper-crustal low-angle faulting in the origin and evolution of the topography.

VG Abstract

In comparison with the known boundary conditions that promote salt deformation and flow in sedimentary basins, the processes involved with the mobilization of clay-rich detrital sediments are far less well established. This talk will use seismic examples in different tectonic settings to document the variety of shale geometries that can be formed under brittle and ductile deformations.
