The southern section is generally low in altitude, ranging between 0 and m above mean sea level. The cretaceous play of Tano basin which is located southeastern part of Ghana begun its tectonic activities in the last Jurassic era where there was a continental rifting between African plate and the South American plate. This lead to the creation of the West African Transform Margin. Tano Basin which is part of this margin and boundedFile Size: 1MB.

Three exploratory oil wells (ST-9H, WCTP-2X and WT-1X) from the Tano Basin, south-western Ghana, have been evaluated for their hydrocarbon generation potential by the use of geochemical analysis (TOC, Rock-Eval pyrolysis). The analytical results of samples revealed that the wells have fair to good total organic carbon (TOC) contents, suggesting that there exist conditions in .
