The western extent of the Bredasdorp Basin has significant hydrocarbon potential. Favourable oil and wet-gas prone source rocks and reservoir rocks occur in this area. Some structures within the Arniston Halfgraben that were drilled have large untested updip potential.
Several basin floor fans within the Southern Sub-basin are associated with bright seismic anomalies. The prognosed features of these untested prospects are illustrated and highlighted on the seismic lines indicated on the locality map (see PDF download below).
