NNPC, Halliburton search for crude in sedimentary basins
  • Post by Admin on sunday, March 05, 2015






In its bid to pinpoint the exact location of viable crude oil deposits, the Research and Development Division of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation has entered into collaboration with the United States of America-based Halliburton Corporation in the ongoing search for commercial hydrocarbon in the inland sedimentary basins.

The Group General Manager, R&D Division, NNPC, Dr. Bola Afolabi, said in Port Harcourt that the collaboration with Halliburton would help fast-track the inland basin exploration efforts through the use of the innovative Neftex solution designed to provide exactitude in drilling for oil.

He said the Halliburton Neftex solution, which would provide a geophysical mapping structure of the country, would complement the ongoing in-house efforts by the NNPC research centre to develop what is known as the 'Turonian Cenomanian Cretaceous source rock' for all the basins in Nigeria.
