Hydrocarbon Potential of the African Interior Rift Basins

  • Major oil discoveries in several Cretaceous and Cenozoic rifts
  • Rifting from Infra-Cambrian to recent times –many basins unexplored
  • High potential for source, reservoir and trap development
  • Very localised exploration to date
  • Poor understanding of common themes between rifts from different
    locationsand ages
  • Huge scope for recognising new exploration opportunities with geological insight
