Petroleum Geology of North Africa

Petroleum Geology of North Africa
Geological Society Special Publication vol.132
The Geological Society, London | 1998 | ISBN: 1862390045 | 449 pages | PDF | 250 Mb

The main objectives of this book are to increase the level of documentation towards that appropriate for such major petroleum provinces and to facilitate the application of analogues between North African countries and beyond.
This volume represents the first attempt at a compilation of the petroleum geology of North Africa, documenting a series of papers collected on the petroleum geology of Morocco, Algeria,Tunisia, Libya and the western part of EgySection

North Africa contains some 4% of the world’s remaining oil and gas reserves, and is now one of the most active exploration areas.
As the aims of this book are to encourage the use of analogues over national boundaries, papers we are grouped the geographically.
