Hyperdynamics Corporation has engaged the University of Arizona Department of Geosciences for a two-year study of geology and tectonic history of its exploration block offshore Guinea, including the identification and characterization of igneous rocks and associated sedimentary features from 2-D and 3-D seismic data from the area.
“We are excited to have the Department of Geosciences work on this project for Hyperdynamics. The learnings from this project will allow us to better understand the geology of the area and evaluate future drilling sites,” said Ray Leonard, Hyperdynamics’ President and CEO.
The University of Arizona is ranked No. 1 in geology in U.S. News and World Report’s annual survey of U.S. graduate programs.
Hyperdynamics is an emerging independent oil and gas exploration and production company that is exploring for oil and gas offshore the Republic of Guinea in West Africa.
