Since gas was first discovered in the Nile Delta in late 60’s,<br>most exploration programmes have focussed on shallow<br>Pliocene reservoirs, where gas can clearly be seen as bright<br>events on excellent quality seismic data and where exploration<br>success has been very high. The petroleum geology of the<br>deeper pre-Piocene section is fundamentally no different to<br>that seen in the Pliocene, where potential reservoirs consist of<br>sand prone channel systems originating from the Nile. Why<br>then, have we been deterred from exploring in the deeper<br>section?
