Tectonics and Source Rock Potential of the Southern Caribbean Margin

The Tectonics and Source Rock Potential of the Southern Caribbean Margin Regional Report will provide New Ventures explorationists with the structural and tectonic understanding on which they can base more focussed exploration.

The report examines and tests the radically different plate models that have been proposed for the Caribbean in order to assess which model best fits observations in northern Colombia and Venezuela. These observations include a new structural framework (interpreted from Getech’s extensive gravity and magnetic databases), structural modelling of the margin, and a redefinition of the crustal architecture and depth-to-basement. The report also examines how insights from our structural mapping and plate modelling impact models for the deposition, preservation and maturation of Late Cretaceous and Cenozoic source rocks.
