The Marina prospect comprises a large fault bounded structure withtargets at multiple levels from 900m subsea to 2900m. The targets arein the Tertiary Pliocene La Cruz to Cardalitos formations.

The structures are well defined by 3D seismic. Nearby hydrocarbon seeps demonstrate that migrating hydrocarbons are present, supported by seismic AVO anomalies indicative of trapped oil at Marina.
