Talk Description
Seismically derived geothermal gradient mapping conflated with the recently de-risked source rock in the Luderitz Basin provides a method for defining an oil generative window and constraining source rock maturity risk. This under-utilized technique is not exclusive to Namibia, and its application in many other deepwater clastic basins provides a tool for constraining source rock maturity in countless undrilled frontier basins around the world.
