The study was completed in October 2011. The objective was to assess the hydrocarbon prospectivity offshore Lebanon by interpreting and integrating 2D seismic profiles acquired and processed by Spectrum (2000 and 2002) and Petroleum Geo-Services (2008) covering 4750 km and 5000 km respectively.
An important result of the study based on the aforementioned 2D seismic data is the definition of numerous plays with favorable trap-reservoir-source rock combinations in the different geological domains as well the identification of many leads. Furthermore, the study allowed for the definition of seventeen (17) plays resulting from favorable trap-reservoir-source rock combinations in the different geological domains. On fifteen (15) of them it was possible to define forty (40) leads having more than 10 km2 closures
