crossmanensis is from a locality that was thought to be late Turanian but may be younger, probably not as young as Santonian (as argued by Clarke et al., 2011), but just as likely Coniacian as late Turanian (Massoni et al., 2015).

The hydro-stratigraphic characteristics of terrains that appear in the rock mass are fairly well defined: limestone and dolostone belonging to the Coniacian, Santonian and Campanian units which are highly permeable and are the main karstic aquifers of the region.
The preliminary studies on the lithostragraphy and depositional environment of the oil shale deposits of the Abakaliki fold belt indicated that three lithostratigraphic units, namely: Abakaliki, Eze-Aku and Awgu shales of Albian to Coniacian ages are present.
On April 7, 2007, began work-over operations on well HEK-3, an oil and gas discovery well drilled by Sonatrach in 2004 when it tested the Cretaceous, Coniacian limestone interval and achieved a flow of 184 barrels of oil over a four-hour period before that was suspended.
This biozone corresponds to Hattin's (1982) lithostratigraphic Marker Units 1, 2 and 3, which are collectively Late Coniacian in age.
In the Coniacian and Lower Santonian, sediments derived from the degraded eastern side of the graben became deposited (Jerzykiewicz, 1971; Valecka, 1988).
