In this paper with the help of latest available data including field, well and seismic data, palaeoenvironments and depositional sequences of Kashafrud, Chaman Bid and Mozduran formations constructed in order to determine the basin evolution of the Kopet-Dagh during Middle-Late Jurassic. Our study reveals that wedge-shaped sedimentary units, onlap surfaces, high sedimentation rate along with deepening- and fining-upward, assign extensional regime as the result of rifting during Middle Jurassic. The sequence of initial rapid continental stretching during the Middle Jurassic, followed by slower and thermally driven subsidence in the Late Jurassic. Tectonosedimentary evolution of the Kopet-Dagh Basin during Middle-Late Jurassic has a great interest for the future exploration and production in this rich but poorly understood hydrocarbon province.
