TitleDescriptionCategoryTypeProject Year
Source rock sampling and assessment from major formations between Santo and Malekula and across the Central Basin to Maewo and Pentecost Minerals and Hydrocarbons (MHC) Assessment 1985
Hydrocarbon Programme Digitization of important documents of relevance to the hydrocarbon potential of Vanuatu Minerals and Hydrocarbons (MHC) Programme 1999
Investigate the Metalliferous Mud Potential in the Active Volcanic Arc and the Back-Arc Basins of Vanuatu (Continued) Investigation and sampling of South-east Epi using available submersible Minerals and Hydrocarbons (MHC) Cruise 1985
Identify & Assess data management needs Minerals and Hydrocarbons (MHC) Technical Assistance 1986
Offshore Minerals - Metalliferous sediments To locate and evaluate the mineral potential of metalliferous sediment deposits in member countries EEZ Minerals and Hydrocarbons (MHC) Activity/Task 1987
Offshore Mineral Potentials - Petroleum Crude oil and natural gas have been discovered and recorded in from shallow wells drilled in New Caledonia. Crude Oil and Natural Gas potentials may exist at great depths on slope of shallow marine shelves surrounding islands and in areas of extensive area submerged platforms and archipelagos. Minerals and Hydrocarbons (MHC) Activity/Task 1972
Publication for Promotion of Hydrocarbon Potential Papers were written for publication in oil industry journals to promote regional hydrocarbon potential, highlighting new results from country evaluations.. Minerals and Hydrocarbons (MHC) Activity/Task 1994
Petroleum Geology and Geophysics Course Two courses on Petroleum Geology and Geophysics, a Basic Course at the University of Papua New Guinea and an Advanced Course at the Department of Minerals & Energy were presented in PNG. Minerals and Hydrocarbons (MHC) Study 1993
Collate all data relevant to hydrocarbon potential in Vanuatu and to carry out and promote further exploration The collation of data dependent on the results of the source rock sampling and biostratigraphic and lithostratigraphic correlation, which took place during the 1984 cruise. Hydrocarbon data collected from the Tripartite II cruises had been completed up until this stage. Minerals and Hydrocarbons (MHC) Technical Assistance 1986
Tripartite II Hydrocarbon data evaluation Minerals and Hydrocarbons (MHC) Technical Assistance 1986
