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. Core interpretations from wells will be compared with outcrops, and the trap types and genesis in relation with the tectonic style will be discussed with particular emphasis in salt tectonics.
We will focus on carbonate reservoirs of the Aptian Serdj, the Late Senonian Abiod and the Eocene Garia/Boudabbous Fms. Source rocks of the Bedoulian Sidi Hamada, the Albian Fahdène and the Early Turonian Bahloul Fms. will be investigated and the trap timing in relation to the charge will be discussed. On the last day, we will visit the third largest oil field, the Sidi El Kilani oil field and then the Archaeological Museum of El-Jem.
