SPAIN'S BASQUE AREA ONLY LIGHTLY EXPLORED
Edward Frankovic Consultant Bilbao, Spain The portion of the Basco-Cantabrian basin within the Basque country of northern Spain remains an attractive exploration area for hydrocarbons (Fig. 1). Jurassic sourced oil found in seeps from Upper Cretaceous rocks has so far eluded the explorationist. In addition, possible gas reserves, like those found just south of the city of Vitoria or off Bermeo, will probably be found in the future.
