THE CRETACEOUS SERIES IN THE CHAD BASIN, NE NIGERIA: SOURCE ROCK POTENTIAL AND THERMAL MATURITY

R. O. Olugbemiro*, B. Ligouis*, and S. I. Abaa**

The Chad Basin is the largest intracratonic basin in Africa, and one-tenth of its surface area lies in NE Nigeria. Thermal Previous HitmaturationTop (mean vitrinite reflectance) and organic-geochemical (Rock-Eval pyrolysis) studies have been carried out on Cretaceous shales from the Bima Formation, Gongila Formation and Fika Shale Formation. Samples were derived from the Kanadi and Albarka exploration wells, which are located about 76 km apart in the Nigerian sector of the Chad Basin.
