A variety of plate tectonics techniques and tools are available to explorationists for analyzing various aspects of a structural play. These plate tectonics techniques cover a broad range, both in scale and type, from plate tectonic studies to microscopic examination of grain-scale structures and from outcrop studies to computer-intensive numerical modeling.
For a structural play to be accepted, Eslan’s expert consultants construct a coherent explanation of the mechanics or tectonics responsible for creating the play. Such explanations can be any of the following:
These explanations provide you with greater confidence in our interpretations and a higher level of predictability in poorly constrained areas.
