Nigeria Keta - Togo - Benin exploration basin

Report summary

The Keta - Togo - Benin Basin (KTB) is situated in the Gulf of Guinea and stretches across offshore and onshore Nigeria, Benin, Togo and Ghana. It is an abrupt margin basin with a thick sedimentary fill. Compared to the multiple giant discoveries of adjacent basins - such as those in the Niger Delta fan and the Cote d'Ivoire Basin in Ghana - the KTB Basin has so far yielded only three relatively small discoveries. Exploration has been sporadic, with only a handful of wells drilled offshore in 1970 and onshore in the 1990s. More recent exploration focused offshore, in both the deepwater and on the shelf. The 2013 Ogo discovery in the Nigerian section of the basin sparked new exploration interest, although we do not expect high levels of activity in Nigeria. Full details are availablo download in excel and pdf format.
