TRONDHEIM, NorwayEMGS has received permits from Mexico’s Comisión Nacional de Hidrocarburos authorizing the acquisition of up to approximately 88,000 sq km (33,977 sq mi) of multi-client 3D EM data in the Salina de Itsmo basin.

EMGS will prioritize acquiring EM data for the future bid rounds in Mexico as outlined in the “Plan Quinquenal de Licitaciones para la Exploración y Extracción de Hidrocarburos 2015-2019” announced by the Secretaría de Energía.

EMGS said that the southern Salinas exploration area has major structures and pointed out that Lower Miocene turbidite systems are considered to be the most attractive reservoir opportunities, containing significant channel facies, with additional indications for basin floor fans.
