    During this period rift basins formed in the Arabian Gulf, the western region of the Arabian Peninsula, and Oman, where thick salt deposits are found (Hormuz Formation of Iran, and Ara Group of Oman). Al-Husseini () provides a recent review of this early stage of Plate evolution. @article{osti_, title = {Geology of the Douala basin, offshore Cameroon, West Africa}, author = {Pauken, R J and Thompson, J M and Schumann, J R and Cooke, J C}, abstractNote = {The Douala basin is predominantly an offshore basin extending from the Cameroon volcanic line in the north to the Corisco arch in the south near the Equatorial Guinea-Gabon border.

Many petroleum geologists and companies now believe that the basin may well develop into a new major hydrocarbon province which will significantly contribute to Europe's energy needs in the next decades. This book presents papers from a conference held at Sebha University - on the eastern margins of the Murzug Basin - in September

      1. Guban basin: is the sedimentary basin which covers mainly northwest along the Gulf of Aden with an onshore area of approximat km2. The Guban basin extends into the Gulf of Aden to an offshore extent, possibly bigger than its onshore area. The total number of wells drilled in this basin is 11; 9 are onshore, and 2 are offshore. Field research in the relatively unstudied Lower Zambezi trough of northernmost Zimbabwe and adjacent Zambia and Mozambique has revealed a sedimentary tectonic history unlike other Karoo basin (Late Carboniferous to Early Jurassic) of the region. This presents a much better setting for petroleum deposits than has been found in those other areas.

This book reveals the main trends of the formation of petroleum pools in major parts of North African basins. It deals with the regional geology of this important oil- and gas-producing area.

Emphasis is laid on paleoenvironmental and provenance reconstructions, trap formation, diagenesis, compaction-decompaction equilibria in petroleum-bearing reservoirs and related fluid geodynamics and oil and gas generation.

The northern domain is formed by two half grabens: Pakwach Basin in the south and Rhino Camp Basin in the north. The two basins are separated by an accommodation zone, the Wadelai accommodation zone.

The Pakwach Basin is controlled by Panyimur fault on its western side, and the Rhino Camp Basin is controlled by Rhino Camp Fault on its eastern side.

The basin is the eastern extension of the Cote D’Ivoire-Ghana Basin and formed as a result of trans-tensional movement during the separation of Africa and South America, and opening of the Atlantic in the Albian.

Active rifting and subsidence during this period resulted in the formation of a deep basin. Sedimentary basin development continued with the formation of the Ghanzi-Chobe basin that consists of a linear belt of volcano-sedimentary sequences in northwestern Botswana [8].

Chapter 11 SEDIMENTARY BASINS 1. INTRODUCTION The official definition of a sedimentary basin is: a low area in the Earth’s crust, of tectonic origin, in which sediments ntary basins range in size from as small as hundreds of meters to large parts of ocean.

The resulting deposit scheme is mainly marine and shows a considerable development of post-rift deposits. Deposits are usually limestone, marl and shale, found almost in all East African coastal basins.

This type of deposit began in the Low and Middle Jurassic and was marked by widespread unconformity across East African basins.

It deals with the regional geology of this important oil- and gas-producing area. The NW African Central Atlantic margin extends from the northern tip of Morocco southward to the Guinea Fracture Zone which bounds the southern margin of the Guinea Plateau (Fig.

He has written close to 70 books and more than 30 scholarly papers on petroleum geology and has spent many years developing a theory of Sedimentary Basins that portrays an optimistic prognosis of oil and gas reserves in the s: 1.

1 Akata-Agbada follows the petroleum system naming convention of Magoon and Dow () where the petroleum system source rock is given first followed by the reservoir rock containing the largest volume of hydrocarbons. [] 2 Reijers and others () report natural gas reserves at TCFG ( BBOE).

This is a near fold increase that likely reflects the underreporting of gas in The. A foreland basin is a structural basin that develops adjacent and parallel to a mountain nd basins form because the immense mass created by crustal thickening associated with the evolution of a mountain belt causes the lithosphere to bend, by a process known as lithospheric width and depth of the foreland basin is determined by the flexural rigidity of the underlying.

In most petroleum systems which characterize these basins, the Jurassic (mainly the early Toarcian) played the major role in hydrocarbon generation which constitutes 25% of the global reserve of hydrocarbon.

Tunisian basins represented by the northern Tunisian trough, the Dorsale and the North South Axis (NOSA) belong to the southern Tethyan. The basin is characterized by the double-layer structure.

The lower structural layer, formed in the rifting stage, consists of the Eocene lacustrine deposition and the Oligocene including the Yacheng formation of transitional facies and the Lingshui formation of shallow sea deposits.

African sedimentary basins, with relatively low degree of exploration and huge undiscovered hydrocarbon reserve, are the present hot spots for oil and gas exploration.

Three phases of marine transgression and regression occurred within the Albian to the Coniacian (Nwajide, ) and gave rise to mudrock, sandstone, limestone deposits and pyroclastic flows with an estimated thickness.
