Alaminos Canyon

GERG's 1988 Alaminos Canyon consortium collected 170 cores throughout the Alaminos Canyon protraction area. Core locations were focused along the edge of the deep-water salt sheet, resulting in the detection of oil seepage in association with large structural features. The results extended the incidence of hydrocarbon seeps into greater water depths and contributed to the increased prospectivity of this region.

Deliverables for this study include PDF images of core logs (core locations and descriptions) and data volumes with the results of the following analyses: total scanning fluorescence, C15+ gas chromatography, and C1-C4 hydrocarbons (headspace).
