Overview of the French exploration licences - Natural hydrogen potential of the massif armoricain (brittany) and its sedimentary cover (west paris basin)
The Armorican Massif, Breton peninsula, is located in the far west of France. It consists of Proterozoic and Paleozoic sedimentary, magmatic and metamorphic formations that were deformed by the Cadomian and Variscan orogenies. It extends to the east under the Mesozoic and Cenozoic sedimentary series of the west of the Paris basin of which it constitutes the bedrock. Although lacking obvious targets (e.g. large mantle rock bodies), the variety of rocks that make up the Armorican basement and its high-density fault network of various age are worth exploring for the formation of hydrogen and its migration. The geochemical surveys we have carried out over the last two years highlighted hydrogen anomalies in soils. In the Brittany region, we will study the possible accumulation in the fractured basement. Further east, in the Paris Basin, hydrogen could have been trapped in the Mesozoic sedimentary reservoir formations (Lefeuvre et al., 2024).Co-auteur : Christophe Rigollet, Vincent Roche, Yannick Branquet, Eric Thomas, Jeanne Bride, Ulysse Froger
