Geological Exploration and Exploration Department of the Ministry of Mines is a department of the Burmese Ministry of Mining and conducts research in the field of geological and minerals exploration..... It operates under the Myanmar Mines Law and Rules. Geological mapping has been carried out by the Department of Geological Survey & Exploration for almost 77% of the state.
Map of South Asia - Open File Report 97-470C
The present document is provisional and has not been checked for compliance with the U.S. Geological Survey and stratigraphical classification as well. The map is a digital compilation of the geological and geological regions as well as South Asian API. This map is part of a global U.S. Geological Survey World Energy Project program.
Aim of the subproject is to evaluate the unexplored, technologically exploitable global reserves of crude and natural gases and to present a full account by the year 2000. To manage information, the globe was subdivided into eight power zones, which roughly correspond to the world's economies as determined by the U.S. State Department.
Southazia ( "Region 8") is included on this CD-ROM (see reference map) and covers Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. Then, each area was further subdivided into geological counties based on the use of geological units and may contain a dominating structure or a series of interrelated features.
A number of counties have several related genetic pools. Geological provincial borders for South Asia have been delimited using geological map information from UNESCO and other geological and terrestrial information (see Selected References). The limits of the off-shore regions were determined by the 2000 metre long bathyme outline from the UNESCO geological map (see references). Attempts were made to divide the regions into two groups: on-shore, off-shore and combining on-shore and on-shore.
Southeast Asia, numbers begin in the western part. Petroconsultants International Corporation's global Oilfield Databank has assigned Oilfield and Gasfield information to these counties. Geological counties are further divided into crude and evaluation unit to assess the unexplored crude resource potentials of select counties in the rest of the run.
See Klett and others, 1997 for an in-depth debate on the geological counties and their rankings in relation to the entire known oil volumes. The map for South Asia was mainly produced and synthesised by UNESCO in 1976 and 1990, geological plans of South and East Asia on a scale of 1:10.000.000 and 1:5.000.000 respectively.
You can find information specifically about the source of the information in the Meta Information on this CD-package. Geological entities have been merged to make the map easier and more consistent with other cards in the group. Oilfield and natural-gasfield markings are central points of fields that have been released with the approval of Petroconsultants International Date Corp. Abu, M., Bakr, M.
