ACREAGE

2492 Km².

GEOLOGICAL SETTING

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.

PETROLEUM SYSTEM

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.
 

Source Rocks

  • 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
 

Traps

  • The block is mainly characterized by structural traps; faulted anticline and foot wall of normal fault.
