Basin Analysis

Predicting where in a basin hydrocarbons may be found, and their likely volumes and types, depends on understanding the detailed history of the basin.

Basin analysis involves utilising a range of geological disciplines to understand the basin's structure, subsidence (or uplift) rate and heat flow through time; the nature of its stratigraphic infill, and diagenetic or other changes which might have occurred to the sediments.

Blackbourn Geoconsulting, together with associated companies, can bring together teams of specialists working in all of the required disciplines, in order to develop an integrated model of a basin's history that forms the basis of its subsequent exploration.
