The Jougar block is located in Northern onshore Tunisia
The JOUGAR block is a part of the Northern Tunisian Atlas, characterized by the presence of;
- Atlasic folds, with NE-SW trends such as the Jebel Mansour and the Aksabe anticlines
- Triassic outcrops, the most important being the Jebel Chehid
- Grabens such as Bou Arada, Aroussa and Gaafour grabens.
Reservoirs and seals
- The primary target is the Barremian M’cherga sandstones, which tested gas in Mansour-1 well.
- The second targets are the Albian and the Aptian limestones.
- Other fractured limestones (Jurassic and Ypresian) can be considered as additional reservoirs in the block.
- Two main source rocks contribute to charge the potential traps; the Barremian Upper M’Cherga and Albian Lower Fahdene shales
- Additional source rocks can be provided by the Ypresian Bou Dabbous and Cenomanian-Turonian Bahloul limestones
- The block is mainly characterized by structural traps; faulted anticline and foot wall of normal fault.
