Neftex® Insights delivers detailed evaluation of the sequence stratigraphy, geological history and petroleum geology of India, Pakistan and
Bangladesh, including key petroleum provinces such as Bombay, Krishna-Godavari, Cauvery and Ganga.
Historically exploration in the Indian Subcontinent has been dominated by onshore and near shore plays, such as Cenozoic clastic petroleum
systems of the Cambay Basin and Eocene carbonate plays in the Middle Indus Basin. Recent interest has expanded exploration into the deep
offshore, in areas such as the Bay of Bengal and the offshore Indus Basin, as well as looking to plays in older stratigraphy, for both conventional
and unconventional resources.
By interpreting data for the ISC region within the context of a global sequence stratigraphic model, key lowstands can be identified with associated
fan sand reservoir potential (for example Neogene sands of the Bay of Bengal), as well as intervals of global anoxia and the potential for
organic enrichment in offshore basins. The ability to predict petroleum systems in frontier basins, such as the Kerala Offshore Basin, through extrapolation
from nearby producing basins, in this case the Bombay and Cauvery basins, as well as through the use of analogues helps to understand
inherent exploration risks and highlight key plays.
