B07 TECTONICS AND SUBSIDENCE EVOLUTION OF THE SIRT BASIN LIBYA Abstract and Introduction 1 Backstripping analysis of 225 wells located within the Sirt Basin (Fig. 1) provide new constraints on the Sirt Basin development. Four coherent tectonic phases from Late Jurassic to present. The presentation of contour maps of subsidence and crustal stretching allows to visualize spatial and temporal stretching migration. A close match is observed with stretching phases documented for other African Basins consistent with discrete phases in the opening of the Tethys and Atlantic. Rifting and reactivation appears to be primarily controlled by the orientation of the basin
