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."
Following the unexpected death of Andrew Whitham, the Managing Director of CASP, the CASP Committee of Management met on March 1st 2019 to approve the restructuring of the senior management team. This is as follows: Managing Director - Mike Curtis; Chief Geologist - Steve Vincent; Chief Financial Officer - Joanna Hall.
