Course Date: Fri 8 Mar 2019
Location on this date: KS - Keeley StreetKazakhstan's geology is of regional and global significance.
As the largest landlocked country in the world, with a population of only 18 million, Kazakhstan occupies a key position in Central Asia. With a long and strong history of regional trade, modern Kazakhstan is a vibrant and beautiful country, rich in natural resources, and underlain by stunning geology. An overview of the geology, its context within the network of neighbouring states, and the importance of some of the principle sedimentary basins (from an oil and gas perspective) will be discussed. The lecture will explore the significance of the Precaspian Basin in the west, where massive primordial carbonate reefs, the size of Central London, exist at 4-5 km depths below the surface: these contain immense resources which are of long-term strategic and sovereign importance.
