The carbonate banks of the Turks and Caicos Islands rest on oceanic basement. The banks formed in the Late Jurassic in shallow waters and are faulted and tilted in response to subduction of the North American plate under the Caribbean plate.
Globalshift considers the stratigraphy to be unfavourable for oil and gas potential onshore. There may be some potential for gas offshore in deep waters on the southern side of the islands although no drilling has yet been carried out.
The Turks and Caicos Islands have no history of production and no exploration wells have ever been drilled on the islands or in their surrounding waters.
Globalshift forecasts no oil or gas production in the future.
