Evidence for Multiple Petroleum Systems Confirms Oil & Gas Plays in Peruvian TEA

Condor Energy Ltd (ASX: CND) (Condor or the Company) is pleased to provide an update on exploration progress at its Technical Evaluation Agreement (TEA) offshore Peru where two large oil prospects (Raya and Bonito) have already been identified and regional mapping shows that the primary source rock interval, the Oligocene/Miocene aged Heath Formation, is mature for oil generation over much of the TEA area.
HIGHLIGHTS
  • Maturation mapping shows that at least two source rock intervals are present within the TEA
  • Heath Formation source rocks shown to be oil mature over majority of the TEA
  • Zorritos Formation reservoirs (primary target) have access to oil charge from mature Heath Formation source rocks
  • Piedra Redonda gas field most likely to be charged by deeper source rocks in the Mancora formation
  • Unexplored deep gas play in the TEA identified

Figure 1 – Maturation map showing expected Vitrinite Reflectance (%) in the middle of the Heath Formation. The peak oil generation zone corresponds to a range in vitrinite reflectance between 0.8 and 1.2% shown in green.

The Raya and Bonito prospects are large features in the Zorritos Formation, which present structural closure at multiple levels and the potential for stacked pay with multiple Zorritos reservoir-seal pairs present.

Based on analysis of surface outcrops, cuttings and core samples from previous wells published by Perupetro (the Peruvian national oil regulator), there are numerous potential source rock intervals in the Tumbes Basin.

The Company recently completed an interpretation of the wider regional seismic data which mapped key intervals and confirmed that the Heath Formation (Figure 1) and Mancora Formation likely sit within the maturity window for oil and gas generation respectively.

Hydrogen Stocks: 9 Biggest Companies in 2024

Hydrogen stocks are benefiting from cleantech sector momentum as the world moves closer to a green energy future.

The most abundant element on Earth, hydrogen is a colorless gas. It can be produced in liquid form and burned to generate electricity, or combined with oxygen atoms in fuel cells. In this way, hydrogen — which produces no carbon emissions — can replace fossil fuels in household heating, transportation and industrial processes such as steel manufacturing.

Rising demand for carbon-free energy sources alongside significant new government policies are driving growth in the hydrogen market. Grand View Research projects that the global hydrogen-generation market will grow at a compound annual growth rate of 9.3 percent from 2024 to 2030, reaching US$317.39 billion by the end of the forecast period.

From Fossil Fuels to Renewables: How the Energy Transition is Transforming the Oil and Gas Industry

The oil and gas sector has long been one of the Earth's largest and most valuable industries, but it's undergoing major changes to compete in the green energy transition and remain profitable.

At last year's COP28 summit, nations signaled a definitive shift away from fossil fuels, marking a potential "beginning of the end" for the era. While ambitious, the reality is more complex. Oil and gas aren't disappearing anytime soon — in fact, the industry is projected to rake in revenue of US$5.3 trillion in 2024, with daily consumption of 103 million barrels.

Indeed, petroleum remains the lifeblood of transportation systems, powering billions of vehicles, while natural gas heats a significant portion of the world's homes. At the same time, the industry's substantial environmental impact — accounting for 15 percent of energy-related emissions on a worldwide scale — cannot be ignored.
