Geology of a Part of the Pacific Margin of Chile

  • Mordojovich K. Carlos

Abstract

An exploration program of the continental shelf of the Chilean Pacific Coast has been carried on since 1970 by Empresa Nacional del Petróleo of Chile (ENAP). This program included bathymetry, aeromagnetic and seismic surveys, and exploration drilling. The area investigated is located between 35 and 40°S, a distance of about 600 km.
