Thursday, 15 September – Saturday, 17 September 2022, 8:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m., Tunis, Tunisia - Laico Tunis Spa and Conference Center
This field trip is an overview of the proven cretaceous and eocene plays in the foreland of the Atlas System in the Central Tunisia (Pelagian Basin). In order to get a deep insight into the reservoirs facies and depositional systems, the impact of natural fracturing on reservoir behavior and the source rocks characterisation we are going to visit the spectacular outcrops along the NS axis ridge in central Tunisia.
The structurally complex area of Northern Tunisia (onshore and offshore) corresponds to a fold and thrust belt (FTB) zone, a result of the tertiary compressional/trans-pressional tectonics (Pyrenean and Alpine). This field trip will focus on the different structural styles in the different segments of the area using a rich amount of outcropping and subsurface data and their relationships within the petroleum systems components (source rock and reservoir Rock).
