HGS International Dinner – Oligocene-Miocene Rifting and its Influence on Siliciclastic Reservoir Distribution and Exploration in the Gulf of Suez, Clues from Recent Sub-surface Analysis, Eastern Desert, Egypt

Lynx will have a ‘Vendor Corner’ booth at the forthcoming HGS International Dinner talk on Egypt to be given by Sharma Dronamraju on Monday 15th February. The talk is focussed on siliclastic reservoir distribution in the Gulf of Suez, drawing on an analysis of data obtained through EOR work on the Yusr field in the Eastern Desert.

The venue for the talk and dinner is the Westchase Hilton, at 9999 Westheimer.

Exploration opportunities in Egypt are presented in several discrete play types across its key basinal provinces. Some of the more prolific plays, such as the Lower Cretaceous Bahariya Sandstones of the Western Desert, and Oligo-Miocene to Plio-Pleistocene sandstones of the Nile Delta province, are fairly well established and continue to provide significant drilling success rates, with the recent Eni Zohr discovery (30 TCF) standing out as a world class gas field. Many other play opportunities are yet under-explored in frontier areas, and known oil accumulations in non-primary targets e.g. early Tertiary limestones in the Western Desert remain under-exploited.

The Gulf of Suez is the site of Egypt’s first oil discovery back in 1886, and to date this classic rift basin province has yielded over 130 field discoveries. Its producing fields are predominantly uplifted, pre-Miocene tilted fault blocks within which clastic and carbonate reservoirs are sealed by overlying Miocene shales and evaporites, or broad anticlinal flexures, containing Miocene clastic reservoirs formed over the uplifted blocks by differential compaction and subsidence. These fields are particularly attractive from the production standpoint, being characterised by good reservoir parameters, long oil columns, stacked pays, good quality crude and shallow water depths. A marked improvement in the technical understanding of the petroleum geology and geophysics of the basin has resulted from the refinement of the geologic models and recent improvements in seismic data quality which have improved resolution beneath the evaporites, leading to a better understanding of the distribution of pre-salt reservoirs and the recognition of a wide variety of trapping mechanisms in structural, paleogeomorphic and stratigraphic undrilled leads providing opportunities for future discoveries.

The entire exploration potential of Egypt is detailed in a comprehensive GIS-based ‘Exploration Adviser’ study produced by Lynx and partners Fairway Exploration.

Iran – lifting of sanctions brings new exploration opportunities

US and EU sanctions on Iran were lifted last weekend in accordance with the nuclear agreement announced in July 2015, paving the way for global energy companies to re-enter the country. While this will probably add to the downward pressure on oil prices in the short term, it also provides new opportunities for cost-effective exploration and enhanced production in an established petroleum province.

Iranian officials are expected to provide full details of the much-anticipated Iran Petroleum Contract (IPC) during a London conference to be held over 22-24 February. Meanwhile, the National Iranian Oil Company has already set up a dedicated web portal with information on the initial contract areas slated for exploration and development. A total of 52 existing oil and gas fields are being marked for development projects, whilst locations for 18 blocks across the length and breadth of the country – including 4 in the Caspian Sea – have now been outlined for exploration bids as part of the IPC (see embedded map beneath).

Lynx Information Systems Updates West Africa Aptian Salt Basin GIS Report and Database in response to the recent Congo-Brazzaville and Gabon Licensing Rounds

In response to the recent launch of the Congo-Brazzaville and Gabon Licensing Rounds, Lynx Information Systems and Fairway Exploration have made substantial updates to the Hydrocarbon Exploration Potential of the West African Aptian Salt Basin ArcGIS-based Report. 

The study provides a comprehensive ArcGIS-based database and evaluation report on the prospective basins of Cameroon, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Congo and the Kwanza Basin of Angola, and identifying new plays and leads in areas of currently open acreage.

GIS-based exploration portfolio management processes and tools have been used to organize the database so that it is able to support the exploration workflow at any stage from basin analysis and initial play generation, through data acquisition and on to the identification of new plays and their maturation into drillable prospects.

In addition to the GIS and Report, the database includes electric LAS logs from over 90 wells, digital SEG-Y data from over 100 seismic lines and tops, reservoir and geochemistry data for over 1000 wells in the area. The project contains a considerable amount of new information and interpretation. New play maps illustrating the distribution of the major source, reservoir and seal facies that make up the hydrocarbon systems in each basin have been produced. Play Fairway Maps have been generated from these data to which exploration risk parameters have been applied to develop maps suitable for undertaking Risk Analysis.

If you would like further information, or would like to arrange a live demonstration,  please contact us on 00 44 (0)208 780 2634, or email lynx@lynxinfo.co.uk

Iran Petroleum Contract and New E&P Opportunities in Iran

Following the news of a positive conclusion to negotiations in Vienna between Iran and the P5+1 group of countries, international oil companies are once again expected to turn their attention towards E&P opportunites in Iran just as soon as sanctions are fully lifted.

The Iranian Ministry of Petroleum, together with the National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC), has already devised a new set of terms for encouraging investment from foreign companies, in a new format being presented to industry called the Iran Petroleum Contract (IPC).

40+ field development projects have already been marked for investment as part of the IPC: The map beneath provides a snapshot of these project areas.

NIOC priority projects 1&2

Lynx offers a comprehensive Exploration Adviser GIS dataset for Iran with an associated Hydrocarbon Evaluation report, combining results from historic seismic and drilling programmes with interpreted maps, field data, and summary field sheets with coverage over these IPC project areas. Please contact us for further details.
