Well-Log Seismic Sequence Stratigraphy of Aruba and its Application to the Hydrocarbon Exploration in the Caribbean Area
WORNARDT, WALTER W., Micro-Strat In
AAPG Bulletin
Volume 77 (1993)



AAPG/SVG INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS/EXHIBITION
March 14-17, 1993Caracas, Venezuela

Several wells have recently been drilled in offshore Aruba approximately 12 degrees North Latitude and 70 degrees West Longitude, just north of the Westernpart of Venezuela, South Central Caribbean. One of the wells, the Oxy Chuchubi # 1 well penetrated a largely carbonate section that ranged in age from early Pliocene to early Oligocene to late Eocene? at its total depth of 9,210 feet. High resolution biostratigraphy of benthic and planktonic foraminifers and calcareous nannofossils provided the abundance and diversity histograms necessary to recognized a series of maximum flooding surface condensed sections (MFS). Fourteen maximum flooding surfaces within the MFS condensed sections were identified on the well log and dated using the planktonic foraminifers and calcareous nannofossil . These maximum flooding surfaces range in age from 4.0 Ma to 35 Ma or possibly 36.5 Ma. The paleobathymetry varies from middle to outer neritic in the upper portion of the well to lower bathyal to abyssal in the lower portion of the well. Fourteen third order sequences and their systems tracts were identified and annotated on a well log. These sequences were correlated with the Global Cycle Chart of Haq, 1987. The sequence stratigraphy provides a means of chronostratigraphic correlation to Venezuela and provides a direct tie to the geological history and hydrocarbon potential of the area.

Hydrocarbon Potential of the Aruba and Western Curacao Basins, Offshore Venezuela

 

El-Mowafy, Hamed Zeidan1, Paul Mann2, Alejandro Escalona2 (1) Institute for Geophysics, Jackson School of Geosciences, University of Texas at Austin, Austin, TX (2) Jackson School of Geosciences, The University of Texas at Austin, Austin, TX

 

Although Venezuela is the sixth largest oil producer in the world, there is no significant hydrocarbon production from its offshore basins.

 

We use a 885 km grid of 2D seismic data and three deep exploration wells drilled in 1989/90 to evaluate the hydrocarbon potential of two, 5.4-6 km-thick offshore basins near Aruba.

 

Four seismic sequences are defined: Sequence 1 consists of a 1300-m-thick section of continentally-derived clastic deep-water sediments, overlying an irregular basement of Late Cretaceous-Paleogene arc rocks; thicknesses are controlled by an east-striking set of parallel normal faults. Sequence 2 consists of a 2600-m-thick, early Miocene section of deep-marine deposits controlled by northwest-striking normal faults; the top of sequence 2 corresponds to the Middle Miocene unconformity of regional extent. Sequences 3 and 4 record 1450-m of a late Miocene deepwater to shelfal clastic and carbonate basin section; shelf-slope-fan clastic systems infill from small deltaic systems along the Venezuelan coast; normal displacements are observed on a set of northwest-striking faults.

Limited maturation data from the three wells indicates that only the southwestern part of the study area falls within the oil and gas window. These observations are consistent with bright spots seen on the seismic data and by gas shows reported from the wells.

A potential source is the continentally-derived terrigenous section of sequence 1; potential reservoirs include slope fans within sequence 3 and carbonate buildups on footwall blocks within sequence 4. Migration pathways are provided by northwest-striking normal faults that penetrate from the basement level through sequence 4.

Colombia hands out Caribbean booty

By Upstream staff

Colombia said today that UK-based BP and Brazil's Petrobras were among the companies awarded exploration contracts for 13 offshore blocks in the Caribbean Sea.

Colombia's National Hydrocarbons Agency said Block RC4 went to a consortium including BP, Petrobras and Colombian state-run player Ecopetrol.

The government awarded Block RC10 Caribbean to ONGC Videsh - the overseas investment arm of India's Oil & Natural Gas Corporation - and Ecopetrol.

The Colombian player was also given the rights to develop a separate block alone.

Block RC8 went to Petrobras, ONGC Videsh and Ecopetrol while the RC5 block went to BP alone, the agency said.

    Hotping, the map is a good one.  I tried to see what the name of the survey ship pictured was, but wasn't able to.

I'm sure the following is a repeat, but I'll post it anyway.

DISMISSAL NEWS:

Judge Won't Toss Superior Offshore Securities Suit
Jocelyn Allison

Securities Law 360. January 13, 2009
_________________________________________________________________________

EXCERPT: A federal judge has refused to dismiss a securities class action against officers and directors of Superior Offshore International Inc. and underwriters involved in the bankrupt company's April 2007 initial public offering. Judge Nancy F. Atlas of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas ruled Monday the plaintiffs had adequately pled their claims against the individual defendants and underwriters Merrill Lynch Pierce Fenner & Smith Inc. and J.P. Morgan Securities Inc. Before its collapse, Superior Offshore provided underwater construction and commercial diving services to the crude oil and natural gas industry in the Gulf of Mexico. Shareholders have accused the defendants of conducting the company's IPO with a false and misleading registration statement and prospectus. Litigation was stayed against the company after it filed for bankruptcy in April, but claims continue against former board chairman Louis Schaefer Jr., President and CEO James Mermis, Chief Financial Officer Roger Burks and General Counsel Joshua Koch Jr. Both the individual defendants and the underwriter defendants lost their bids Monday to dismiss the case. In her ruling, Judge Atlas noted that the plaintiffs' Section 11 claims under the securities laws did not require detailed pleading, and that they only needed to allege a material misrepresentation or omission on the registration statement to proceed with the case. The plaintiffs had alleged that the registration statement included a number of false statements or omissions, such as claiming that the company had good prospects for future hurricane-related repair work when in fact such work had declined at the time of the IPO, court documents said.

Eric Smith, the only remaining board member to stay onboard when Superior Offshore filed bankruptcy April 2008 with newly appointed Lovett (Strategic Capital), appears to be a professor at Tulane (Finance dept.     ), has a background in oil/gas and at one time worked for Torch Offshore.

SCC has served in an advisory capacity in several complex chapter 11 cases. Mr. Lovett currently serves as an independent director of ASARCO, LLC.
Recent experience and assignments have included serving as crisis manager, chief restructuring officer, financial advisor, plan agent, liquidating trustee, unsecured creditor committee advisor, and independent litigation officer of a broad diversity of public and private corporations. SCC has also advised banks and other institutions relating to outstanding financings to financially distressed companies. Industry experience includes financial services, internet and information technology, telecommunications, oil and gas, manufacturing and distribution, trucking and shipping, steel foundry and forges, health services, manufactured housing, consumer products, and restaurants.

Mr. Lovett has over 25 years of experience in investment banking and brokerage, including almost ten years as co-founder, chairman and chief executive officer of Lovett Mitchell Webb & Garrison, Inc., a regional New York Stock Exchange member firm.

Hi 2NJ! I thought that the map was a good one.....about the ship I also tried to see what the name was but couldn't see it either.... Maybe Klaas or Blonde could figure out a way to be able to read it....

I tried to open that pdf when I was reading about Smith but got a message that the file was damaged and cannot be repaired.  Same thing is happening, today.  Maybe it's this old computer?   Not sure, but I wish I could open it.  I think I did read some of his background elsewhere while searching yesterday.  I'd have to find it, again.

Found another copy of that pdf online and was able to open and read it.   

In the process I found a current article that had a comment by a person named Eric Smith....odds are it's the same man.

If we do not get back to putting people to work now. Get the rigs up and running. The oil price will sky rocket and this US admin will have no choice than to continue with all the wind power games. We need to drill and produce oil people. A little money is better than no money.

We continue to follow Pet Coke options for power generation in Louisiana and Texas. Along with ULL we hope to receive Federal funding for the development of a new disaster response planning tool. We also continue to monitor developments in the expansion of world wide LNG markets. We are particularly interested in the economic impacts of LNG imports on higher cost domestic E&P activities. With the Tulane Chemical Engineering faculty, and others, we are in the early stages of a feasibility study focused on a new approach to renewable fuel which eliminates the transportation disadvantages endemic to ethanol. Finally, we have a long term interest in the effects of US gas shortages on the toll fee for transporting natural gas between East Texas and West Louisiana. (Normally $.22/mcf, this transportation charge ballooned to $4.00 during the 4thquarter of 2005, helping to push Henry Hub and hence NYMEX prices to all time highs.)

 PressReleases     Dockwise Secures USD 63 Million in Near and Longer Term Contract Awards
 
Thursday, May 28th, 2009

Dockwise Ltd. announces eleven near-and longer term contracts awarded to its subsidiary, Dockwise Shipping, for the transportation of jack-up drilling rigs, semi submersible rigs and port & marine infrastructure. Total revenues for the contracts are approx USD 63 million, adding USD 33 million to the backlog end of Q1 2009.

Dockwise Shipping, in company with industry partners, is to transport the jack up drilling rigs COSL Craft, Shelf Explorer (forth and back), Seajacks Leviathan and Gorilla III to their new assignments in China, Sakhalin, Netherlands and Canada respectively. On behalf of various clients, Dockwise Shipping has been contracted to transport four cranes, dredging equipment, a jack up working platform and an accommodation barge to USA, Equatorial Guinea, Egypt and Angola respectively. All contracts to be executed in Q2, Q3 and Q4 2009. Also to be executed in the second half of 2009 is the transport of semi submersible drilling rig Victoria to Brazil. Turning to longer term contracts Dockwise Shipping has been contracted to transport semi- submersible rig La Muralla to Mexico in 2010. Both the Victoria and La Muralla are 6th generation dynamic positioning rigs.

Of this USD 63 million, USD 30 million was already reported in backlog per 31 March 2009.

Andre Goedee, Chief Executive, Dockwise Ltd., said: "The market for drilling rig transportation continues to show mobility of rig equipment. With ongoing shortening of lead times to execution Dockwise is able to provide its clients maximum flexibility of its 20 vessel fleet. For the current year we rely on our core heavy marine transport activities. It is encouraging to see that also contracts for the longer term are added to our backlog, underpinning the strategic choices we made. This will increase Dockwise's visibility on future revenues and earnings."
