D. Monnier, P. Imbert, A. Gay, R. Mourgues and M. Lopez Pliocene sand injectites from a submarine lobe fringe during hydrocarbon migration and salt diapirism: a seismic example from the Lower Congo Basin Geofluids 14
Large-scale conical and saucer-shaped sandstone intrusions have been identified in the Upper Miocene sediments of the Lower Congo Basin. They are ranged from 20 to 80 m in height, 50 to 300 m in diameter, and 20 to 40 m in thickness. They are aligned over 20 km in dip direction, above the NW fringe of an underlying Upper Miocene submarine lobe, which is interpreted as the parent sand. Sand injection dates from the Miocene-Pliocene boundary.
