Since NIOC Company has planned to initiate exploration drilling projects in close future, and considering the scant of enough data from subsurface horizons in the South Caspian Basin specifically in Iranian coastal plain, initiating an investigation on available exposures in the region that enclosed Eastern part of Mazandaran to Eastern part of Golestan provinces (Fig. 1).
This project focuses on variety of geological terms that include: sedimentology, Paleontology, Stratigraphy, Tectonic and, geochemistry. Each of this material brings very useful information from history of evolution of South Caspian Basin, and its relationship with Kopeh-Dagh Basin. Also in next drilling projects make it possible to explore with higher accuracy in the area.
In this project «KEPCO» ((The Khazar Exploration Petroleum Company)) rolled as a client and supervisor to supply and monitor the study process.
