Finding African Oil

Invest in Africa! but where? 0

Wednesday, January 28, 2015, London, Royal Society of Chemistry

The “Scramble for Africa” continues, with the energetic pursuit of resources being balanced by manifestly escalating security issues and political change.

The focus of this event will be on leading edge exploration, with hotspots being - Shale oil/gas, West African offshore subsalt (or pre-salt), interior intracatonic basins and of course East Africa, with the extending oily rift plays of Uganda and Kenya possibly extending to the north (into Ethiopia) and to the south (perhaps as far as Malawi).

For this full day event, we invite insightful presentations on this range of topics. So please get in contact if you or your company would like to present, exhibit or sponsor this event.

Mark Jones - Business Development Manager - INTECSEA

Opportunities and Challenges in Deepwater West Africa Projects

Talk Description.
The Gulf of Guinea has been a major oil province for over fifty years, but over the past ten years the region has seen a rapid growth in the number of developments in deep water. From the massive Bonga development to smaller subsea tie-backs, oil and gas production has moved to water depths of 2,000 metres and more. The challenges in moving further offshore and into deeper, frontier areas of West Africa are not purely technical. Bringing North Sea and Gulf of Mexico expertise to the Gulf of Guinea has led to important discussions on how the areas economies can best benefit not just from the hydrocarbon production but from the development of indigenous technical expertise and the establishment of a supply chain which can export to other countries. This presentation looks at several of the projects which have been completed and also some in progress to highlight these challenges.
INTECSEA
INTECSEA is one of the world's leading and most experienced deepwater engineering companies, specializing in floating systems, offshore pipelines, marine riser systems, subsea systems and Arctic development.

Ray MacSweeny - Director of Energy & Assets Advisory - Ernst & Young

Onshore East Africa - the impact of onshore success in East Africa on returns to investors

Talk Description.
This talk will review the recent history of onshore exploration in East Africa, and their impact on operators. It will consider the current path to development and production, how this may be impacted in period of prolonged reduction in global oil prices, and other changes in the legislative and legal environments that may impact long term returns.
Ray is a director in EY's Oil and Gas Strategy practice. He specialises in new country entry strategy, local content in emerging markets, management of non-technical risk and operating model design.

We help oil and gas companies navigate through the changing regulatory environment, manage risks and optimize performance.
15:00

Paul Markwick - Technical Director - Getech

The palaeogeographic evolution of Africa: applications in exploration

Talk Description.
The variation in hydrocarbon prospectivity around Africa reflects a diverse tectonic and depositional history. The question is to what extent can exploration risk be mitigated by understanding these relationships: how tectonics affects the evolution of heatflow, trap development and accommodation space; the role of depositional processes in dictating the distribution and character of source, reservoir and seal facies.

In this presentation we will look at the relationship of a selection of known discoveries and plays from around Africa in the context of palaeogeography, tectonics and surface processes to see whether any insights can be gleaned and what this might indicate for future exploration.
Paul has over 25 years experience in academia and industry. He began his career at BP back in the 1980s where his work included upwelling predictions using conceptual climate models, palaeogeographic mapping, cyclostratigraphy and oil from coals. In 1989 he started his PhD with Professor Fred Ziegler, as part of the Paleogeographic Atlas Project at the University of Chicago. His work on palaeoclimate proxies brought together palaeogeography, palaeoclimatology, database design and management and statistics. This was followed by a post-doc with Professors Paul Valdes and Bruce Sellwood at the University of Reading applying palaeoclimate models to the southwest African coast as an exploration tool for placer diamonds. In 1998 he joined Robertson Research (now CGG-Robertson) where he developed the palaeogeographic and predictive source rock models, which subsequently became central to the “Merlin” project. He joined Getech at the end of 2004 to set up the Petroleum Systems Evaluation Group and became group manager in 2006. He joined Getech’s board in 2008 as Geological Director and became Technical Director in 2010.

Paul continues to actively pursue academic research and has convened two conferences on Palaeogeography (Cambridge 2008) and Predictive Lithofacies Modelling (Snowbird 2006), as well as publishing numerous papers on topics as diverse as glacioeustacy, Antarctic tectonics and palaeogeography, database design, the K/T extinction, biodiversity and climate, palaeoclimate proxies and drainage analysis.

Paul has is a Visiting Research Fellow at the Universities of Bristol and Leeds.

Ben Young - Business Development Geophysicist - CGG

Airborne gravity gradiometer surveying of petroleum systems under Lake Tanganyika, Tanzania

Talk Description.
This paper was written by Doug Roberts(Beach Energy), Priyanka Roy Chowdhury(CGG), Sharon J. Lowe(CGG), and Asbjorn Norlund Christensen(CGG)

Beach Energy has been the sole interest holder and operator of the 7,200 km2 Lake Tanganyika South block since 2010. The block is located within the western arm of the East African Rift System. The prospectivity of the lake sequence was enhanced by large oil discoveries in the similar geological environment of Lake Albert in Uganda and in the eastern part of the rift in Kenya. The lack of wells drilled in the lake to date make predicting sedimentary sections difficult.

In 2010 Beach Energy commissioned CGG to fly a FALCON Airborne Gravity Gradiometer (AGG) and a high-resolution airborne magnetic (HRAM) survey over the Lake Tanganyika South block in order to map the basin structural framework and the depth to magnetic basement. The FALCON AGG survey facilitated the imaging of the architecture of the rift zone and the interpreted sediment thickness provided an indication of prospective petroleum target areas.

This information was used to plan a subsequent 2D marine seismic survey, which was shot in 2012. The preliminary results from the 2D marine seismic survey has confirmed a rifting structure similar to that encountered further north at Lake Albert in Uganda. A number of targets over tilted fault blocks, low-side rollovers and mounded features, have been identified for follow-up from the seismic sections.

Natural oil seeps evident on the surface of Lake Tanganyika, which have been sampled and analyzed by Beach Energy, also indicate that a working petroleum system is present in the sedimentary section of the rift beneath the lake.
