Syria Palmyride Foldbelt exploration basin

Syria Palmyride Foldbelt exploration basin

Report summary

The Syria Palmyride Foldbelt extends east from the Lebanese border across central Syria.  The northeast sector of the basin contains several onstream oil fields, with gas discovered in central and southern areas. The country has been in Civil War since 2011 which is impacting exploration. Despite tough fiscal terms, the low discovery and development cost environment provides full cycle returns, even at our low price assumption.

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.
