Greenland Southwest Greenland exploration basin

Report summary

The Southwest Greenland Basin remains a highly under-explored frontier area. Whilst the area contains high subsurface potential and is governed by a reasonably attractive fiscal regime, exploration comes with significant technical and commercial challenges. The most recent drilling activity was carried out in 2011, however all of these wells were dry holes and there are currently no plans for any more exploration wells. There are numerous challenges in the basin, including; the absence of any in-place infrastructure; the deep water environment; and difficulty in mobilising equipment to this remote Arctic location. The asset report for the Greenland Southwest Greenland exploration basin has been archived. A comprehensive update will be carried out if and when activity necessitates it. However if the basin is of interest to you, please contact us using the analyst details linked to this report and we will share Wood Mackenzie’s latest views and information.
