A re-appraisal of the Mesozoic and Cenozoic evolution of the Atlantic margin basins has been integrated with new data on source-rock kinetics, oil-source geochemistry and fluid inclusion studies to calibrate the petroleum systems of the study area and model these systems utilizing 2D modelling software. The high β factors that are reported from these basins are cumulative estimates. Superposition of rifting events and evidence of prolonged rifting until the early Paleocene demonstrate that heat… CONTINUE READING
