Nias basin, NW Sumatra – new insights into forearc structure and hydrocarbon prospectivity from long-offset 2D seismic data

  Last week, my colleague from TGS, Ian presented a talk in the 38th Indonesian petroleum Association annual meeting. He talked about the structures and hydrocarbon prospectivity of Nias forearc basin, which is situated in the central part of the offshore Sumatra forearc area. 1868 km of newly acquired long offset 2D seismic, covers the […]
