Paper Summary

The Benin Ultradeep seismic survey was acquired by TGS in 2009. 2D migrated seismic data shows the boundary between oceanic and stretched continental crust occurs at a transform fault zone. Up to 4 seconds two-way time of sediment cover exists above stretched continental crust. The data quality is very good and allows for the interpretation of sequences from Recent to Early Albian above the stretched continental crust. The ages of the sequences interpreted are considered to be reasonably well constrained and a good correlation can be made from ultra deep updip to the wells on the shelf.
