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.
