Abstract

Summary

East Africa conjugate margin evaluation has led to a greater understanding of source rock deposition and distribution as well as a detailed analysis of the similarities and differences in stratigraphic evolution offshore Somalia, Madagascar, Seychelles and West India. The transform nature of Jurassic rifting explains the differences in crustal architecture across the basins and the presence of isolated salt basins. This study also provides a good framework for play type identification in the four margins with large structural and stratigraphic traps identified and strong evidence for oil.
