Widely varying in a relatively short depth-interval (Fig. 3a). However, an incipient relationship between the degree of clay fabric and pore-throat size exists where higher fabric is associated with small pores. We acknowledge the difficulty in characterizing MTDs deeply buried as recognized by Ogiesoba and Hammes (2012). At depths greater than 7,000 ft (2,133 m), some of the diagnostic features are obliterated because of sediments are compacted and end up paralleling the bedding plane. Nonetheless, the unusual high degree of clay-fabric in the top-seal MTD cannot be explained only by normal compaction and/or diagenesis.

Value for sample at 2,536 mbsf could be measured due to lack of fabric because of the relatively high silt content, (b) Bottom hole temperatures (BHT) from wells in the Jubilee field plotted versus depth (Fig. 2b). Presence of rafted blocks in MTDs can create points of fluid bypass when buried in low permeability strata as documented by Gamboa and Alves (2015). The top-seal MTD over the field equates ~60–80 ms TWT and has an interpreted area of about 35 km2. The part of the MTD acting as the effective top seal in the field is identified as occurring in the transitional area between the translational and compressional toe morpho-domains (Bull et al.
