Petroleum exploration and production in the region of the Niger Delta to date has mainly focused on the onshore, deltaic and offshore deep-water Miocene successions. Although Miocene turbidites have been the principal deep-water target, deeper-lying Oligocene sandstones are now being considered for exploration. This study targets an area beneath the Niger Basin slope at a present-day water depth of 800–1500 m. Within this study area, the Miocene to Recent sands above a burial depth of 3600 m show very good reservoir quality with porosities as high as 35% and permeabilities in the Darcy range. The aim of this study...
