Value to Sponsors:

Determination of

  • flexural forebulge location of the Llanos foreland basin in time.

  • flexure-driven normal fault patterns of the Llanos foreland basin in time and space.

  • major mountain building events of the Eastern Cordillera in time and space.

  • major advance events of the Eastern Cordillera in time and space.

  • expulsion timing in the hydrocarbon kitchens of all recognized oil families.

  • of the spatial distribution of results of each individual migration pulse.

  • lateral and vertical migration segments of each migration pulse.

  • GIS map database that will include geographic information, topography,

shaded relief, satellite image, basin outlines, protected areas, surface

geologic map, well locations, oil and gas fields, petroleum infrastructure,

data and sample locations, interpretations, and location points derived from

this study

  • Digital hot-linked report with particular emphasis on aspects that impact shale gas/liquid potential, including structural/tectonic setting, burial history, petroleum system, geochemistry, heterogeneity, fractures/faults, petrology, petrography, and rock properties, including key maps, cross sections, diagrams and tabulations

  • A ranking of the potentiality of the basins studied, including a geostatistical analysis of the most salient characteristics required for shale gas/liquids play definition
