New Moroccan Offshore Project initiated

A major new project has been initiated on the Atlantic Seaboard of Morocco, an area that has a very active exploration drive at present.

The project will examine and characterise the Early Cretaceous outcrops and improve understanding of the depositional systems and structural evolution of the basin to better constrain offshore reservoirs and improve basin modeling studies.

This project is being led by Prof Jonathan Redfern in collaboration with Prof Giovanni Bertotti at TUDelft, and is supported by ONHYM in Morocco. Further collaboration with Moroccan Universities is anticipated.

Three PhDs have already started, Tim Luber, Angel Arantegui at Manchester, and Remi Charton at TUDelft. Further PhDs will commence working on the area later in 2014.
