The drive for successful hydrocarbon exploration and production in the inland sedimentary basins of Nigeria necessitates detailed evaluation of the paleoenvironments and generative potential of the source rock facies of the Campanian to Maastrichtian Enugu Formation exposed around Enugu, Anambra Basin. The Anambra Basin, located in the southern Benue Trough is a post Santonian synclinal sedimentary structure containing over 5,000m thick of upper Cretaceous to recent sediments. The investigated… CONTINUE READING
