Drilling activity in the Aptian Salt Basins of equatorial West Africa has grown substantially during the past decade. Interest and activity have been encouraged by a series of significant oil discoveries in both the onshore and offshore. To help evaluate exploration opportunities Core Laboratories has developed a comprehensive geochemical database for both crude oils and source rocks. The regional geochemical study of the Aptian Salt Basins addresses several critically important questions including the following:
This study covers the Gabon, Congo, and Cuanza basins of West Africa and the northern extension of this trend into offshore Cameroon. Approximately 10,000 source rock samples from fifty-three (53) wells and 164 oils, representing both the pre-salt and post-salt sections were analyzed.
Results of the study are presented in both analytical and interpretative reports formatted so that the major findings are readily accessible to the explorationist.
