A novel seismic DHI technology using resonance and dispersion to indicate for liquid hydrocarbons is making inroads in the E&P industry, successfully identifying oil and predicting dry wells. Could this find the pot of black gold at the end of the rainbow?

The timing of continental extension relative to salt deposition and the impact of pre-salt faulting is critical to reservoir formation and exploration success in the South Atlantic. Major advances in broadband seismic data processing offer clearer imaging, allowing a closer look at the elements of the prolific plays and their tectono-stratigraphic boundary conditions.
Africa’s total proven reserves stand at 125.3 Bbo and 509 Tcf natural gas, 7.5% and 7.1% respectively of the global total. What are the main challenges and opportunities for future oil and gas exploration in Africa?
