Relating Geology and Geological Structures with Regional Episodes: Implication for Groundwater Exploration and Development around Kwal-Kanke Area, Jos Plateau

AbstractThe  study  addressed  the  Geology  and  geological structures around  Kwal-Kanke  area  around  the  Jos  plateau. Three (3) rock types namely; Quaternary dolerite/basic rocks, aplo-pegmatitic  granite  gneiss  and  migmatite-gneiss  were delineated. The  quaternary  dolerites  and  the  aplo-pegmatitic granite  are  emplaced  in  form  of  dykes  with  lateral  extent greater than 3km trending NW-SE and conforms to the trend of the fractures around Ji...

A Report on Using Geographic Information System (GIS) to Select Solid Waste Disposal Site: A Case Study in Techiman Municipality, Brong Ahafo Region of Ghana

ABSTRACTSolid waste management over the years has been a serious problem on the nation Ghana. This solid waste materials are generated by humans in the cities and municipalities of almost all developing countries. In this country, it is one of the most pressing concerns of the government because of the health problems that comes with it when not managed well. In most countries locating a suitable site for the construction of landfills is not easy. With the invention of the Geographic In...

PETROPHYSICAL EVALUATION AND DETERMINING THE DEPOSITIONAL ENVIRONMENT OF OBAMA FIELD SOUTH-WEST NIGER DELTA

ABSTRACTThe logs from three wells of Obama Field, offshore south-west of Niger Delta Basin were studied for the purpose of evaluating the petrophysical properties and interpreting the depositional environments. The analyses carried out involve delineation of lithologies, identification of reservoirs and fluid types, wells correlation and determination of petrophysical parameters of identified reservoirs and interpreting their environment of deposition. A suite of wire-line logs comprising gam...

A Palynology and paleoenvironmental Study of a Section from the Amansiodo-1 Well, Anambra Basin, Southeastern Nigeria

Abstract: Palynological analysis was carried out on twenty (20) ditch cutting samples from a section (1284.73–1496.57 m) of the Amansiodo-1 well, Anambra Basin, southeastern Nigeria with the aim of determining the age,biozone, and depositional environment of the sediments within the depth interval. The laboratory techniques ofdigesting sediments in hydrochloric and hydrofluoric acids for silicates and carbonates removal were followed toprocess the samples for the recovery of palynomorphs. F...

GEOLOGY OF KAFIN MAIYAKI AND ITS ENVIRONS, NORTHWESTERN NIGERIA

The study area Kafin Maiyaki and its environs is a segment of sheet 103 Federal Survey Topographical Sheet 103 Ikara NW. The area is underlain by migmatite-gneiss and medium to coarse grain gneiss and has been intruded by a series of Pan African Granitoids. Geological structures observed in the area were faults, joints and veins trending mostly in the NW-SE and NE-SW indicating the effect of Pan African Orogeny. No evidence of economic mineralization has been observed but from the petrographi...

Geology and Water Quality Assessment of Okpoma Salt Lake Areas in Yala Local Government Area of Cross-River State, Nigeria

ABSTRACT Geology and Water Quality Assessment of the Salt Lake areas of Okpoma and its environs in Yala Local Government Area of Cross River State has been carried out. The study area lies between longitude 08o 361 E to 08o 411 E of the equator and latitude 06o 321 N to 06o 371 N of the meridian respectively. They belong to the Eze-Aku Group of the Late Cenomanian- Turonian age Southeastern Nigeria. Lithologically the area is underlain by shales and intercalation of sandstone....

Petrophysical characterization of Reservoir Sands of Two Wells in the Offshore Depobelt of the Niger Delta Basin

Petrophysical well logs were integrated in an analysis for the reservoir characterization of C and D wells located in the Offshore Depobelt of the Niger Delta Basin, Nigeria. The study essentially determined reservoir properties such as Lithology, shale volume, Porosity, hydrocarbon saturation and Net-Gross from Well logs with a  view to determining the Reservoir quality. Two lithologies were identified using Gamma ray and Resistivity logs which were sand and shale but minor presence of ...

Aquifer Vulnerability Index: A Method for Groundwater Protection Studies at Uvwiamuge, Western Niger Delta, Nigeria.

AbstractOne major environmental hazard causing serious social problem in oil producing communities in Niger Delta is oil spills. This is as a result of the numerous petroleum related installations. T he the aquifer via pathways along which contaminants flow from the surface to th deterioration of water quality in shallow and vulnerable aquife rs spills contaminate e aquifer causing . Electrical resistivity investigation of the SombreiroWarri Deltaic Plain deposits of the Niger Delta was carri...

The Nature, Scope And Dimensions Of Development Control, Tools And Machineries In Urban Planning In Nigeria.

ABSTRACTDevelopment control as an effective instrument for urban management ensures that the persistent growth and management of settlements can be such that make for orderliness, improved settlement reflection, healthy and aesthetics. It also ensures that the environmental challenges as a result of settlement growth can be reduced to bearable levels. In Nigeria, development control requires special skill as a result of the daily problems the authorities are confronted with, which is ascribed...
