Abstract: Integration of Re-interpreted Previous HitSeismicNext Hit and Basin-modelling: A Case Study

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 Previous HitseismicNext Hit reflector geometries in Maniso area illustrate four Previous HitseismicNext Hit 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. Previous HitSeismicNext Hit 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 Previous HitphaseNext Hit can be identified in Previous HitseismicNext Hit section, followed by a Syn-Rift Previous HitphaseNext Hit, Early Post-Rift Previous HitphaseNext Hit, and ended by a Post-Rift Previous HitphaseNext Hit characterized by sub-parallel reflections. Hydrocarbons are assumed to accumulate within the Previous HitseismicNext Hit sequence sets of the Early Post-Rift Previous HitphaseNext Hit.

Two-dimensional basin-modelling program indicated that the oils generated could migrate within the Previous HitseismicNext Hit sequence sets and accumulated in the stratigraphical traps.

Amplitude Versus Offset study also confirms the trend of these Previous HitseismicTop sequence sets. We believe that the study area is still potential enough to discover stratigraphical prospects.
