Research Interests:

Oluwaseun is active in many fields of geological research ranging from source rock evaluation to structural map interpretation, sequence stratigraphy and reservoir petrophysics but his current research focuses on the reservoir quality, fluid dynamics and their control on the performance of reservoirs in one of the most prolific gas field offshore South Africa. He has been able to present in many prestigious international conferences (AAPG Denver, Colorado and Houston, Texas) to mention a few and also a member of the pioneer team that started the AAPG imperial barrel award (IBA) at the African regional level.
