The Great South Basin offers potential for giant hydrocarbon fields. Outcrops range in age from mid Cretaceous to Quaternary, that are exposed in the adjacent Otago region of the south-eatern South Island offer the closest analogues of many of the rock types in the prospective offshore basin. This two-three day field trip can be run in conjunction with a one day Great South Basin technical workshop.
