    Abstract: Three exploratory oil wells (ST-9H, WCTP-2X and WT-1X) from the Tano Basin, south-western Ghana, have been evaluated for their hydrocarbon generation potential by the use of geochemical analysis (TOC, Rock-Eval pyrolysis). The analytical results of samples revealed that the wells have fair to good total organic carbon (TOC) contents, suggesting tha... Show More
