The Neftex® Insights portfolio provides a wealth of geological data and interpretations useful for investigating analogues. Following Argentina’s recent offshore bid round, we discuss the African conjugate margin as a potential source rock analogue for the Argentina Basin, and explore whether the petroleum systems of the Austral Basin can be extrap...
Industry interest in the Mauritania-Senegal-Guinea Bissau-Conakry (MSGBC) Basin has heightened in recent years with the SNE and FAN discoveries, offshore Senegal in 2014, as well as a successful drilling campaign in 2015–16. Recently, however, many high-profile dry wells suggest that the geological risks in these basins are not fully understood at...

The opening of hydrocarbon exploration in Argentina’s huge offshore area has ignited significant industry interest. This area is similar in size to the US Gulf of Mexico, yet has only been penetrated by approximately 150 exploration wells, most of which were drilled in focused areas of the Austral and Malvinas basins. Only a few wells and sparse se...
Argentina’s Energy and Mining Ministry is in advanced preparations to stage a new offshore licensing round in 2018 — the first in almost a decade. Despite its size (approximately 1.5 million km2, equivalent in scale to the US Gulf of Mexico) and its moderate water depths, there have only been approximately 150 exploration wells drilled to date, mak...
