A full account of 67 ditch cutting samples collected from Well 5, OML 34 in the Niger Delta at depth intervals between 2441m to 3650m is presented. Lithologic description of the samples shows seven lithostratigraphic units composed of shale, siltstone and sandstone corresponding to the Paralic Agbada Formation. Foraminifera analysis was carried out on these samples, a total of 51 species were recovered; 37 benthonic and 14 planktonic. The planktonic index recovered from the well, Praeorbulina…

The coastal sedimentary basin of Nigeria has been the scene of three depositional cycles. The first began with a marine incursion in the middle Cretaceous and was terminated by a mild folding phase
