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."
Research Awards for Geological Fieldwork
In recognition of CASP’s role as a leading provider of applied geological field research, we are pleased to announce the launch of its Research Awards for Geological Fieldwork. These will provide EU-based undergraduate masters to early career researchers 5 annual awards of up to £3,000 to fund applied geological fieldwork.
Research Awards for Geological Fieldwork Winners 2017
We are pleased to announce the winners of the inaugural CASP Research Awards for Geological Fieldwork. Five recipients were chosen from a very strong field. They were: Emilie Axelsson (Stockholm University), Grant Cole (Plymouth University), Lajos Csicsek (Imperial College, London), James King (University of Oxford) and Julien Morin (University of Rennes 1). Congratulations to them all!
