    The Nafoora oilfield is situated on a major tectonic uplift in the eastern Sirte Basin, the Amal‐Nafoora High. Four oilfields have been discovered on this uplift – Amal, Rakb, Augila and Naffora. D. Title: Geology of Tunisia and Adjacent Parts of Algeria and Libya. Author(s): William F. Bishop (2) Abstract: The southern part of the study area is part of the stable Saharan platform which, since the beginning of the Paleozoic, has been affected only by epeirogenic movements.

    2 days ago  Now, with Libya in the grip of civil war and the winds of revolution having blown through Tunisia and Algeria, instability has invited a host of outside interests to attempt to dictate events in. for undiscovered conventional oil and gas fields within two geo-logic provinces of North Africa―Sirte Basin in Libya and Pela-gian Basin in Tunisia and western Libya―as part of the USGS World Petroleum Resources Project (fig. 1). The Sirte Basin originated .
