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."
2018 Award Winners
We are pleased to announce the winners of the CASP Research Awards for Geological Fieldwork 2018. Five recipients were chosen from a very strong field. They were: Bébhinn Anders (University of Galway), Sam Brooke-Barnett (Imperial College), Jessica Pugsley (University of Aberdeen), Anthony Shillito (University of Cambridge), and Euan Soutter and Zoë Cumberpatch (joint award; University of Manchester). Congratulations to them all!
