Cenozoic Foraminifera Biostratigraphy of the Niger Delta book cover

Cenozoic Foraminifera Biostratigraphy of the Niger Delta

Cenozoic Foraminifera Biostratigraphy of the Niger Delta provides a thorough understanding of the Cenozoic Niger Delta and the evolution of its deeper offshore belts, where oil exploration and production activities are expanding into the region’s little known deep-water terrain. The result of a multi-year study by a team of biostratigraphic experts in the oil and gas industry, this new reference will be a source of invaluable data to exploration geoscientists working in the Niger Delta region and those looking for a blueprint that can be applied in several regions globally.

The Niger Delta is one of the most prolific oil provinces in the world-its production making Nigeria the 8th ranked oil producer globally. The oil and gas sector worldwide has interest in operational and developmental activities in the Niger Delta since the delta’s structural setting has parallels to comparable hydrocarbon settings globally. Its applications will play a major role not only in future exploration efforts in the region but globally as well.

Audience

The Oil and Gas sector world-wide has interest in operational and developmental activities in the Niger Delta. O&G consultants, geologists, marine geologists, geochemists, and geophysicists with a focus on hydrocarbon exploration and extraction are the primary market.
