... worldwide are situated in the Southeast Galeota (SEG) structural complex on the Trinidad shelf. Stacking of multiple, thick deltaic pay zones within large structural culminations result in very high reserve density. The SEG complex covers an area of ~60 mi 2 (150 km 2 ) and contains some 14 TCF...

... The accretionary complex is likely to be a less favorable environment for oil prospectivity because of lean or discontinuous source rocks, structural complexity, and a vigorous hydrodynamic system. Mud volcanoes in accretionary complexes worldwide are associated with predominantly thermogenic...
