From the Gulf of Mexico, Brazil, and Angola in the southern Atlantic margin, to emerging areas of opportunity in the Guyana-Ghana equatorial Atlantic margin, eastern offshore Canada, the Irish Sea in the Northern Atlantic margin, the Mediterranean Sea, and the South China Sea, discovery and production of deepwater turbidite reservoirs have been significant. Recent advances in geologic understanding and technology innovation in deepwater and ultra-deepwater settings have made new plays accessible and hydrocarbon production viable in areas that were off-reach in previous decades. New play concepts have been emerging from traditional passive margin turbidites to deposits that have been described...
