Talk Description
Relatively recent exploration successes in Israeli and Cypriot waters have put the offshore Levant Basin on the radar for a number of oil companies. There remains however one particular enigma: what is the sediment source for the Lower Miocene reservoirs that have proved so prolific? We will examine evidence from drainage analysis of the surrounding hinterland, palaeoclimatic research and palaeogeographic mapping for the region based on Getech’s Global Plate Model to appraise some of the contenders for sediment source and look at why reservoir development ceased prior to the Messinian Salinity Crisis of the late Miocene.
