Abstract

This paper describes the architecture of deep marine turbiditic systems in the lower Congo basin, offshore Angola, as seen on the 3D seismic. Thanks to the relatively shallow burial depth and the excellent resolution of the 3D seismic data, detailed interpretation of the turbidites is possible, even in those areas where well information is scarce. Both large-scale distributary systems and reservoir-scale internal architecture can be visualised and interpreted in terms of hydrocarbon reservoir potential. The paper presents several examples from different settings in the lower Congo basin. The emphasis lies on channelized turbiditic systems, which are described in their large-cale tectonic and sedimentary framework.
