Conference Paper
Full-text available
The Guama field is located in the Plato sub-basin, a Miocene feature where early exploration pursued deep turbiditic targets in the 70's and 80's; when exploration resumed in 2008, seismic inversion predicted that the turbidites had poor lateral extent. With new 3-D seismic, a stratigraphic gas play was defined with AVO analysis that at less than 7...

The Plato Depression in the Lower Magdalena Basin is a Miocene depocenter where a thick, shale-prone marine sequence known as the Porquero Formation was laid down in basin-floor conditions. Seismic inversion carried out on new and existing 2D seismic data helped to focus early exploration on a shallow stratigraphic gas-sand play associated with wha...
Conference Paper

Deep and extensive graben basins are preserved below the South American sub-Andean foreland basins. These features are the subject of frontier exploration in Colombia and Venezuela. Indeed, "traditional" exploration models were based on the superposition of two Wilson Cycles that considered one or more pre-Cretaceous petroleum systems within pre-Cr...
Book
Full-text available
This book covers basin essentials of the Lower Magdalena basin, located in northwest Colombia, including exploratory history, basin style and evolution, commercial plays and trap styles, regional stratigraphy, structural styles , field petrophysics and petroleum systems. The book is volume 10 of the Petroleum Geology of Colombia series, edited by U...

The La Creciente gas field was discovered in November 2006 as part of renewed exploration interest in the Lower Magdalena basin and Colombia at large. The field is located 120 km southeast of Cartagena, in the west central part of the Lower Magdalena basin in the Cicuco High and 10 km due west of the Guepaje-Ayombe gas fields, discovered in 1992 wh...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Field research, organic geochemistry and biostratigraphy were carried on a Jurassic sedimentary section (la Luna Formation) along a continuous outcrop in the axis of the Merida Andes in Venezuela. The field work was part of a pre-grad thesis and allowed to confirm the presence of source-quality facies in Late Jurassic lacustrine and marine La Quint...

Resumen Partiendo de algunos modelos corticales ya publicados, se proponen, sobre una sección regional orientada norte-sur, varias posibles interpretaciones geodinámicas coherentes del margen septentrional de Venezuela en el Oriente del país, desde el río Orinoco hasta la placa del Caribe, pasando por Barcelona. En la parte terrestre, la sección es...

The paper presents 1. A composite west to east geo-transect across the Maracaibo Basin from the Icotea High to Motatan, based on multiple first - generation 3D seismic surveys acquired in 1992 - 1994. 2. A composite map showing principal present-day structures and trends, based on merged time slices. Pervasive extension and selective strike-slip an...
Article
In the central part of the Maracaibo basin, integration of recently acquired 3-D seismic and existing geological data has led to the definition of the Lamar sub-basin as an array of partially inverted half grabens which formed during Late Cretaceous and Early to Middle Eocene times as a result of transtensional episodes along older rift structures....
Article
Syntectonic alluvial fans formed on the northern margin of the Ebro Foreland Basin along the South Pyrenean thrust front during late orogenic thrust movements in the late Oligocene/early Miocene. The present-day geometry, structural relations and sedimentology of one of these fans, the Aguero fan in the province of Huesca, Spain, were studied. Fiel...

A lithostratigraphic and sequential model has been established with the integration of seismic, biostratigraphic and field data of the tertiary sedimentary columm in the northern flank of the venezuelan Central Andes. Clastic sediments deposited in prodelta to fluvial environments are dominant from Paleocene to Middle Miocene. Coarse-grained coasta...
