Abstract

Basin modelling is used to gain insight into a petroleum system by representing the geological processes operative in the evolving system responsible for the generation, accumulation and preservation of hydrocarbon. This paper presents a study of the application of basin modelling (1D and 2D) and diagentic study in predicting reservoir quality of untapped potential Oligocene reservoirs Offshore western Niger Delta (Figure 1a), by using the basin model's capabilities to predict the siliclastic diagenesis that accompanies the hydrocarbon system. The result of the study is used to assess the reservoir quality in the Oligocene interval and its potential as a future play.
