Unlock Caribbean opportunities with the CAMDI and Barbados data

28 February 2022

CAMDI and Barbados Map 2022

The CAMDI and Barbados surveys target the highly prospective Southeastern Caribbean Region, tying several producing areas, and deep-water wells (including Sandy Lane). CAMDI is the most modern dataset in the region, best suited for the current 2022 Trinidad and Tobago and upcoming Barbados licensing rounds.

Competitive rates are available on the high-quality pre-stack time, pre-stack depth, gravity and magnetic datasets.

About CAMDI and Barbados Products

The Caribbean Atlantic Margin Deep Imaging and Barbados surveys are designed to assist oil companies to better understand the regional tectonic framework of the various basins along the Southeastern Caribbean and Western Atlantic margin of Northeast South America. The CAMDI survey includes a Detailed Grid off Trinidad and Tobago and Grenada, and when integrated with the Barbados survey they provide more detail, tying the producing areas to the underexplored deeper part of the Tobago Trough and Barbados.

The Tobago Trough is an underexplored area flanked by oil and gas production to the East and South in Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago. Its prospectivity was recently underpinned by a new gas discovery offshore Grenada. Seismic interpretation of these surveys shows a thick sedimentary succession in the Tobago Trough. The presence of a mature La Luna oil-prone source rock in the Trough seems likely.

The Caribbean Atlantic Margin Deep Imaging and Barbados survey tie the Sandy Lane well in Barbados. In addition, CAMDI ties to several deeper wells in Trinidad and Tobago.

Barbados Survey Acquisition Parameters

The Barbados survey was acquired in 2012/2013 and reprocessed in 2015. The survey was acquired using a 37.5-meter shotpoint interval and Continuous recording 13.5-second record length, over a 14 x 14 km and 7 x 7 km prospect grid. The survey covers the Barbados Trough, the Tobago Basin and crosses the Barbados Ridge.
