The Abu Gharadig Basin is well established as a prolific hydrocarbon bearing province of the Western Desert, Egypt. However, the oil and gas fields discovered so far are moderate to small in site and are trappel in a complex stratigraphic and structural setting. Postulated hydrocarbon generation models indicate that significantly more hydrocarbons (up to 3 billion bbls) have been generated in this basis and have migrated into the available traps. However, the relatively remote location of this area requires careful economic considerapons before commitment to any potential development. Therefore, better means of trap definition is highly desirable .
