Exploration Atlas of Turkmenistan

This report was created as a guide to the geology of Turkmenistan, designed to assist companies considering the competitive bidding that was invited a few years ago. To date, 16 companies have acquired this product. The report consists of 37 black-and-white pages (to facilitate internal copying), plus 23 pages of tabular data in appendices. These tables were output from spreadsheets, which are included on disk as part of the report. The work was a joint project of Gibson Consulting and TerraSense.
