The deep-water Léopard gas discovery in offshore Gabon presents an opportunity to examine distal facies of the Albian Madiela and Cap Lopez Groups, which overlie the Aptian Ezanga Salt. In proximal settings, the Madiela (Azingo Formation) consists of shallow marine limestone and has sparse foraminiferal recovery. In contrast, planktonic foraminifera assemblages are typically abundant and reasonably diverse in the interbedded calcareous claystones, marls, and limestones of the distal equivalent (Namina Formation) penetrated by the Léopard discovery and appraisal wells. Five informal local planktonic foraminiferal biozones are interpreted, listed from youngest to oldest, as follows: (1) an Early Cenomanian–Late Albian...
