BIZERTE


GEOGRAPHICAL SETTING

The Bizerte block is located in Northern onshore Tunisia.

ACREAGE

3536 km².

GEOLOGICAL SETTING

BIZERTE block lies in Northeastern Tunisia, covering two geological domains: the imbricated zone to the north and the front Atlasic domain to the south. This zone is characterized by a specific tectonic distribution presented by Atlasic folds dissected by NW-SE trending grabens. In the block, extrusion evaporates and extensional Miocene basins are widespread.

PETROLEUM SYSTEM

Reservoirs and Seals

  • The main targets in the block are the Campanian Abiod fractured chalky limestones, the Ypresian Bou Dabbous fractured limestones, and the Triassic fractured dolomites defined in Utique gas field (CO2.)
 

Source Rocks

  • The major source rocks are the Ypresian Bou Dabbous organic-rich limestones, the late cenomanian – Early turonian Bahloul laminated limestone, the Albian lower Fahdene black shale and the Barremian M’cherga black limestone.
 

Traps

  • The trap types in this block are mainly structural including faulted anticlines, roll-over anticlines, footwall, near thrust faults, the edge of diapirs and hanging wall traps.
