Equatorial Guinea Block EG-18
Africa Oil Corp are seeking a partner to drill a deepwater fan in EG-18. The block is covered by 3D seismic data and the sand fan prospect has been mapped.
Block EG-18 is in the distal Douala Basin, where the main source potential lies in the Upper Cretaceous and Paleogene sections. Using seismic amplitudes, different plays have been mapped and, particularly in block EG-18, Miocene channel-fan systems and Upper Cretaceous-Paleogene fan systems with structural closures were identified. Stacked turbidite systems are clear on seismic along with sand-prone overbanks and sand filled erosive channels going across. Galileo lead (Cretaceous-Paleogene) have been recognized covering an area larger than 200 km2. No wells have been drilled in EG-18 to date, and 2D seismic lines are also available for further interpretation along with few regional lines that cross the block.
