The Offshore Argentina and Falkland Islands SEEBASE® Multi-client Study and GIS is an integrated geological and geophysical study of basement and basin evolution on the Argentine Shelf.

The study constrains the timing and structural context for Triassic to Early Cretaceous basin development prior to and during continental rifting of the South Atlantic Ocean. This new framework for basin evolution will inform exploration strategy and reduce investment risk in the unexplored and underexplored Argentina and Falklands regions.

The study also provides the first continuous 3D depth-to-basement interpretation of the Argentine Shelf and rifted margin. This interpretation framework can accommodate integration of proprietary client datasets including higher resolution gravity and magnetic data, well data, and seismic interpretation to further customise and upgrade the model in areas of interest.

COMPREHENSIVE STUDY DELIVERABLES

  • Basement Geology: Analysis and description of basement terranes, assessment of terrane boundaries, and interpretation of basement composition.

  • Tectonostratigraphic History: Plate reconstructions and summary of key tectonic events; implications for basin development, interpreted of major basement faults, and fault event maps for key events.

  • Depth-to-basement Model - SEEBASE: 3D geometry and depth of the basement surface highlighting basin depocentres and highs.

  • Depth to Moho: 3D geometry and depth of the Moho surface.

  • Sediment, Crustal and Basement Thickness and Beta Factor: Derivative maps created using the SEEBASE and Moho models.

  • Basement Heat Flow: Computation of radiogenic heat production and heat flow, integrating basement geology and architecture, as well as timing and intensity of regional tectono-thermal events.

  • Potential Field Datasets: Frogtech Geoscience's state-of-the-art geophysical processing and enhancements.

What is SEEBASE?

SEEBASE® is an interpreted depth-to-basement model that is the result of a number of calibration and integration steps: 

  • Interpretation of Basement Terranes

  • Review  and Update of Plate Reconstructions

  • Integration of Tectonic Events and Responses

  • Gravity and Magnetics Modelling

  • Assessment and Integration of Crustal Architecture

  • Seismic and Well Calibration

  • Extensive Literature Review
