ZAHRET MIDYEN


GEOGRAPHICAL SETTING

The Zahret Midyen block is located in Northern onshore Tunisia.

ACREAGE

3956 km².

GEOLOGICAL SETTING

The Zahret Midyen block located within two structural domains, from North to South:

  • The overthrust domain called locally the “Flysh Numidian” domain, characterized by thrust sheets trending NE-SW involving series of the Oligo-Miocene,
  • The folded foredeep domain called locally the “Tellian domain”, characterized by the presence of anticlines bounded by NE-SW reverse faults and NW-SE strike slip faults.
 

PETROLEUM SYSTEM

Reservoirs and Seals

  • Potential reservoirs would include Oligo-Miocene clastic turbidites within the Numidian flysch and Eocene and Upper Cretaceous fractured carbonate.
 

Source Rocks

  • The Cretaceous and Lower Eocene organic-rich facies, identified around the acreage, are expected to be also potential source rock in Zahret Midyen Block.
 

Traps

  • Traps could be mainly structural, with thrust-related types. The identified channel of the Numidian series could be a good trap too.
