The Biostratigraphic studies were carried out on core samples of XFormation atDahomey Basin was studied and some key evaluations were reached. The Paleocene age was assigned to the XFormation which is confirmed by the associated Ostracods and Plank-tonic forams. The lithologic units of the succession is limestones. A total of ten samples were collected. From the laboratory analysis carried out, a lithological description of all samples collected depth by depth was made with 2.0m HCI to check… Expand
