Black Sea Project 2019-2021
This phase of the Black Sea Project will include the results of new field data collected in western and central Georgia and the integration of a 20-year field archive to inform a geodynamic review of this complex region and populate two palaeoenvironmental reconstructions.
- A detailed evaluation of potential reservoir units derived from the Dzirula Massif in western Georgia and associated basement highs.
- An Eocene geodynamic review covering the greater Black Sea region.
- The reconstruction of schematic, non-palinspastic, gross depositional environment maps of the greater Black Sea region.
Project length: 24 months from September 2019.
