MAKTARIS


GEOGRAPHICAL SETTING

The Maktaris block is located in Eastern offshore Tunisia where water depth is less than 200m.

ACREAGE

5248 km².

GEOLOGICAL SETTING

The MAKTARIS block is located within the Pelagian Sea. The latter acted as a carbonate platform developed since the cretaceous to tertiary times. Structurally, the block is marked by several grabens (Jerrafa and Isis) and highs related to a fault system trending WNW-ESE and volcanic activities.

PETROLEUM SYSTEM

Reservoirs and Seals

  • The Cenomanian Isis reefal limestones represented the main reservoir target towards the southern part of the block.
  • The Aptian Serj fractured dolomites and limestones represented the main reservoir target towards the northern part of the block.
  • The Upper Senonian Abiod fractured chalky limestones are additional target.
 

Source Rocks

  • The Albian lower Fahdene black shales constitute the main and mature source rock in the area.
  • The Upper Cenomanian-Lower Turonian Bahloul laminated limestones and the Ypresian Bou Dabbous limestones can be an additional source rocks.
 

Traps

  • The mainly trap types in the block are structural, including anticlines, fault related traps and Tertiary tilted blocks.
