Lynx Information Systems Updates West Africa Aptian Salt Basin GIS Report and Database in response to the recent Congo-Brazzaville and Gabon Licensing Rounds

In response to the recent launch of the Congo-Brazzaville and Gabon Licensing Rounds, Lynx Information Systems and Fairway Exploration have made substantial updates to the Hydrocarbon Exploration Potential of the West African Aptian Salt Basin ArcGIS-based Report. 

The study provides a comprehensive ArcGIS-based database and evaluation report on the prospective basins of Cameroon, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Congo and the Kwanza Basin of Angola, and identifying new plays and leads in areas of currently open acreage.

GIS-based exploration portfolio management processes and tools have been used to organize the database so that it is able to support the exploration workflow at any stage from basin analysis and initial play generation, through data acquisition and on to the identification of new plays and their maturation into drillable prospects.

In addition to the GIS and Report, the database includes electric LAS logs from over 90 wells, digital SEG-Y data from over 100 seismic lines and tops, reservoir and geochemistry data for over 1000 wells in the area. The project contains a considerable amount of new information and interpretation. New play maps illustrating the distribution of the major source, reservoir and seal facies that make up the hydrocarbon systems in each basin have been produced. Play Fairway Maps have been generated from these data to which exploration risk parameters have been applied to develop maps suitable for undertaking Risk Analysis.
