Petroleum Basins of Sub-Saharan Africa
September 2nd, The Business Design Centre, London
This one day course presented by Duncan MacGregor, in conjunction with The 14th PESGB/HGS Conference on African E&P but available for separate registration, aims to provide an overview of the tectonic, climatic and topographic controls exerted on Sub-Saharan petroleum systems and resulting hydrocarbon distribution.
The course will concentrate on two main settings, rifts and deepwater turbidite plays, examining the various influences on charge and reservoir in these settings. Short exercises on play cross-sections and petroleum systems charts will be used to segment the lectures on each set of basins, ordered as follows:
Overviews - Plate and Intraplate Tectonic History, Play Development and Exploration History
Pan - African Foreland Settings
Rifts - Karroo, Jurassic, Cretaceous, Neogene
Marginal and Deepwater Plays - SW Africa, Equatorial Margin, NW Africa, East Africa
Young Geoscientists working on Africa & experienced staff working within licences and requiring a regional overview or refresher.
Spaces limited to 70 places.
