F037 Petroleum Geology and Hydrocarbon Potential of Guban Basin (Bihendula Basin) Somaliland M.Y. Ali* (The Petroleum Institute) SUMMARY In this study seismic well and outcrop data have been used to determine the petroleum systems in the Guban basin Somaliland. These data demonstrate that the basin has favourable stratigraphy structure oil shows and hydrocarbon source rocks. In addition the results show that the Upper Jurassic and Cretaceous units and possibly Oligocene-Miocene units show potential for hydrocarbon generation. Traps are provided by rollover anticlines associated with listric growth faults and rotated basement faults and horst blocks which are controlled by Upper Jurassic
