Presentation Abstract:

Recent Exploration in the Timor-Leste Frontier

Timor Resources, has re-commenced onshore hydrocarbon exploration in Timor Leste after a 50-year hiatus. This talk describes the challenges presented by the complex geology and the process of developing an understanding from the regional to the prospect scale. Timor Island is the product of an active continental collision, which has been studied by numerous academics for decades. Timor Resources has harnessed some of their ideas, added a few of our own, and recently acquired 2 seismic surveys and drilled 3 wells in the Suai Sub-Basin on the southern coast, including a deep “sub-decollement” play, first proposed in the 1970s. The talk will show the regional structure developed using gravity and outcrop data and then zoom in to the prospect scale for a look at the recent drilling results.
