Mauritania – Search For Oil

Chariot are searching for deep water sandy pockets of rock which are buried sufficiently deep to receive the migration of oil from three different source rocks.
The recent press release by Kosmos clearly identify three different source rocks which are mature for generating oil.

The question arises as to where did the proposed sand sequences in the rock come from and how we’re such sands deposited offshore when there does not appear to be a major river system in Mauritania to deliver such sand from onshore to an ancient offshore area.

The answer has been the recent discovery of an ancient and massive river system that covered much of north Africa and deposited it’s sediments offshore Mauritania.
