This presentation aims to compare the seismic response of deepwater reservoirs in the main producing provinces of the South Atlantic salt basins, namely the Campos, Santos, Espirito Santo and Sergipe-Alagoas basins offshore Brazil and their mirror image counterparts in West Africa, particularly the Kwanza, Lower Congo and Gabon salt basins.These well known and prolific basins are briefly compared with the transform margin provinces in the Equatorial Atlantic Margin, where recent deepwater exploration resulted in the discovery of Upper Cretaceous oil-bearing reservoirs.
