Hydrocarbon deposits in the Gulf of Mexico

image kmz-en
Gulf of Mexico is one of the richest areas of the globe in hydrocarbon deposits. From this KMZ-en file, you can:

  • extract information showing the geographical location of the region favorable to the formation of hydrocarbons;
  • reconstruct the geological history of this area and to include the formation of hydrocarbons in the context of global tectonics;
  • construct a diagram of the structure of a passive margin.
