Abstract

This study presents the results of the analysis and interpretation of aeromagnetic data over part of lower Sokoto basin with the aim of investigating the hydrocarbon potential of the study area. The study area is located between latitude 11.00oN and 12.00oN and longitudes 40E and 5030E. The Total magnetic intensity map of the study area was subjected to regional/residual separation. Three depth estimating techniques applied on the residual map to determine the thickness of sediments in the study area were Euler deconvolution, Source parameter imaging and spectral method. The results of these methods corroborate; Euler deconvolution, Source parameter imaging and spectral method show a thick sedimentation of 0.125km to 1.54km. The maximum sedimentary thickness of above 1.5 km obtained in this study at the south-western part. The study area was found to have a good prospect for hydrocarbon exploration.
