The offshore of Cambodia – termed the Siam Basin – is part of the very prolific Pattani Trough of the Gulf of Thailand. Current activity within the Siam Basin involves the search for Tertiary fluvial channel sandstones, which make good reservoirs. Although originally thought to be gas-prone, the area is being re-evaluated following the discovery of oil in the Tantauan structure, in Thai waters close to the Cambodian border. Of the five onshore basins, the most prospective is the Tonle Sap Basin in central Cambodia.For more information contact:
