CASP is a not-for-profit charitable trust carrying out field, literature and analysis-based geological research in prospective hydrocarbon basins. Funding comes entirely from subscriptions by the oil and gas industry. Subscribers to CASP projects receive regular confidential reports and updates. The results of our research are published in internationally renowned peer-reviewed scientific journals after a suitable delay.
"Not all geological issues can be addressed by regional and remote surveys, especially in frontier provinces. This is where CASP can help by carrying out focused & cost-effective field-based research, providing insights into key elements of petroleum systems."
It is with great sorrow that we have to report that Andrew Whitham, the Managing Director of CASP, passed away suddenly and unexpectedly on Thursday 31 st January 2019.
At this stage it is too early to provide any further details on the impact that this will have on the organisation. In the meanwhile the other three members of the senior management team – Mike Curtis, Joanna Hall and Steve Vincent – will be sharing responsibility for all managerial matters until a formal meeting of the Trustees is held on 1 st March 2019 to consider future strategy. Our thoughts are with Andy’s family at this dreadful time.
