A new look on the Maniso area has breathed new life for exploration there. Newly interpreted horizons that are used in a 1D basin-modelling indicated the presence of lacustrine depositional environment. Analysis on oil shows indicates that the oils were generated from mature lacustrinic source.
The seismic reflector geometries in Maniso area illustrate four seismic sequence sets each separated by strong reflectors. The interpretation of these sets involves a system where initially the rate of sedimentation is at a minimum and then kept pace with subsidence. Seismic section expression of dip line is that the steep dips are due to the deposition of the sequences.
Sedimentation of these sequences is extremely influenced by a major fault trending relatively North-South which also formed a half-graben system. The Pre-Rift phase can be identified in seismic section, followed by a Syn-Rift phase, Early Post-Rift phase, and ended by a Post-Rift phase characterized by sub-parallel reflections. Hydrocarbons are assumed to accumulate within the seismic sequence sets of the Early Post-Rift phase.
