Reviews each rift to determine common themes and extends knowledge of explored rifts into more frontier basins.

Digital Atlas & Reports

  • Detailed merged digital surface geology maps for the entire African continent, with interchangeable chronostratigraphic and lithological legends
  • Compiled Landsat & SRTM-DEM coverage in ArcMap
  • Depth-structure maps & isopachs integrated with detailed fault interpretations
  • 450+ embedded seismic lines and cross-sections

Hydrocarbon Potential Evaluation

  • Major oil discoveries across 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 locations and ages
  • Huge scope for recognising new exploration opportunities with geological insight
