Exploration experience gained in specific salt basins of West Africa may not be directly applicable to other salt basins along the entire passive margin. To conduct a comparative structural analysis, regional reflection seismic transects were constructed across the salt basins of Morocco, Senegal, Guinea-Bissau, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon and Angola.

Regional-scale similarities of the salt basins include the progressive complication of salt-related structures basinward, the change from an extensional domain on the shelf to a compressional domain on the slope and the presence of a toe-thrust front at the oceanward edge of the basins. Regional-scale differences are partly attributed to...
