In the Mediterranean Sea, in the region of discovered by the Eni Company the Zohr large gas field three anomalous zones of the “oil and gas deposit” type have been detected and mapped within an investigated area of 2200 km2. The area of the detected anomalies over Zohr gas field is 105 km2. The total area of all anomalies is 251 km2. In the percentage for the area of the surveyed site it is 251/2200=11.41%. Three intervals for the hydrocarbon deposits searching have been found by the research in the area of the gas field: 3720-4180 m, 5070-5620 m and 6500-6570 m. Three search intervals were allocated also within the other two anomalies. One of them was mapped on the Cyprus offshore.
Operative examination of search sites and blocks before the licensing rounds (tenders) gives for potential investors the opportunity to refuse from the participating in the study and development of unpromising for the detection of industrial (commercial) hydrocarbon accumulations areas and blocks. This kind of evaluation work can be efficiently performed with using a frequency resonance technology of remote sensing data processing and interpretation within any exploration block in different regions of the globe
1. The independent information on the oil and gas potential of the local area in the Mediterranean Sea, located in the vicinity of the discovered large gas field within the Zohr structure framework, was received. In general, the vast gas resources in an open gas field were confirmed by operatively conducted research.
2. The research results confirm also and the science-based assumptions (developments) of the researchers, which suggests that this region is a major oil and gas area.
3. The potential of super-operative and direct-prospecting frequency resonance technology of remote sensing data processing is fully demonstrated. This technology more active and purposeful using will significantly accelerate and optimize the process of prospecting and exploration for commercial hydrocarbon accumulations on offshore and on onshore.
The presence of additional anomalies in the vicinity of the Zohr structure, and their confirmation by further work can significantly increase the potential and attractiveness of this area (Block 9). To confirm these prospects, it is advisable to compare the obtained independent information with the results of previously conducted geophysical surveys (seismic, in the first place). If in the seismic materials the potential traps will be detected, the additional studies on a larger scale can be operatively performed within the observed anomalies.
