The last decade has seen a series of play-opening discoveries off the west coast of Africa as hydrocarbon exploration has begun probing deeper stratigraphy in deeper waters. Following a long history of successful discoveries in Oligocene and Miocene fields, the 2007 Jubilee Field discovery in the Tano-Ivorian Basin represents a play-opener for Late Cretaceous sand-prone turbidite channel and fan complexes. While numerous satellite discoveries along the equatorial margin have followed, this play concept is still untested in many parts of the West African margin.

Demonstrating a process for smart exploration, this webinar will show how regional and global analogues can be used to establish exploration parameters that identify areas for future focus along the West African margin. You will see how a regional and geologically constrained screening methodology can do the heavy lifting to extract value from existing data for better decision-making in the early stages of exploration.

Speaker | Emma Soldevila Moldes, Exploration Insights Geoscientist

Emma Soldevila Moldes is an Exploration Insights Geoscientist at Halliburton Landmark. She worked at Neftex before its acquisition by Landmark in 2014, and, together with a team of 80 scientists, she was instrumental in the creation of the global geological model linked to a sequence stratigraphy and geodynamic framework. Ms. Soldevila Moldes holds a degree in geology from the Autonomous University of Barcelona, and a master's degree in petroleum geoscience from Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, Scotland.
