Field Campaign, Atlantic Basins, Morocco

A GeoResources team has started an extended field campaign in southern Morocco, together with exploration geologists from the Office National des Hydrocarbures et des Mines (ONHYM), Rabat.

Both Paleozoic source and Meso-/Cenozoic sink areas will be visited. Outcrop studies will be focused on sequence stratigraphy and thermochronology.

Scientists from the RWTH Aachen, who will analyse source rock intervals in the Paleozoic and Mesozoic part of the basin fill have also joined the team.

The field campaign is part of a three-year, multidisciplinary R&D study between RWE Dea AG, Hamburg, ONHYM and GeoResources on the hydrocarbon potential of Atlantic Basins in southern Morocco.
