With the limited opportunity left in the shallower Mid-Late Miocene and Plio-Pleistocene plays, explorers are operating in more technically challenging and costly environments than before. New plays have emerged around every decade. The Cretaceous play has been penetrated by very few wells and may be the next target for more extensive testing. Our analysis gives an overview of the Cretaceous geology and the companies best placed to explore for this upcoming play.
