Paleomagnetic Projects in Africa, Congo, Gabon, Zaire

Our paleomagnetic projects in Africa include case histories from Congo, Gabon, Zaire, Somalia, and Egypt where Applied Paleomagnetics provided paleomagnetic services to petroleum and geotechnical companies since 1986. Our paleomagnetic core orientation service was used offshore West Africa to determine natural fracture, bedding, and in situ stress orientations in oil and gas fields. Offshore Gabon, West Africa our paleomagnetic projects focused on paleomagnetic core orientation in Lucina Formation cores to determine sediment transport directions in cross-bedded sandstone and structural dip based on bedding in shale. Offshore Congo, West Africa our projects focused on paleomagnetic core orientation in Toca Carbonate cores from the Congo Basin to establish structural dip and the relationship between bedding and fractures. Offshore Zaire, West Africa our paleomagnetic projects involved paleomagnetic core orientation of eolian Lucula Formation cores, to determine paleowind directions in cross-bedded sandstone and structural dip from interdunes. In Somalia, East Africa our paleomagnetic projects focused on measuring magnetic susceptibility and other magnetic properties of igneous and metamorphic rocks for modeling aeromagnetic anomalies. In Egypt, we conducted magnetostratigraphic studies near Aswan Dam to determine recency of faulting.
