Brazil Pará-Maranhão exploration basin


Brazil Pará-Maranhão exploration basin

Report summary

The Pará-Maranhão Basin is an offshore basin located in northern Brazil on the Brazilian Equatorial Margin. Compared to the prolific southern Brazilian basins, the Pará-Maranhão Basin has seen minimal activity to date, and so limited success, but holds the potential for significant discoveries. The Equatorial Margin in South America has become the hottest frontier exploration play in the region and was the main attraction of Brazil's 11th licensing round in 2013.

This exploration basin report provides a detailed analysis of recent exploration and future expectations including discovery and development costs, maps and details of licensing and fiscal terms. We also evaluate the yet-to-find volume and value creation potential. The report is accompanied by multiple excel downloads.

Description

Oil and gas exploration is an industry in constant motion, from technological breakthroughs to shifting supply and demand. The high costs of finding and developing new oil and gas fields that can be commercially developed has created a challenging atmosphere, with explorers increasingly seeing low returns, low value and slow progress.

This Exploration Basin report provides a detailed analysis of exploration of this basin, including discovery and development costs, location maps and information about licensing and fiscal terms. You'll also find information about discovery and development costs and full-cycle returns.

Explorers and advisors can use this report to understand the history and potential value of this basin.

Wood Mackenzie has access to historic data for over 450 basins and forecasts for more than 125 basins. We provide accurate information on the cost of exploration compared to the value of discoveries so that you can develop profitable strategies.

Our in-depth analysis gives you the information you need to navigate the ever-changing challenges of oil and gas exploration so you can make critical commercial decisions.
