Abstract

Murzuq basin, Kufra basin and the eastern Sirte basin influenced by almost similar geological events. The three regions in many cases share different geological and geophysical limitations therefore it is logical to make some comparison between the three regions to resolve and identify some of the geological and geophysical problems. Murzuq and Kufra basins remarkably went through similar tectonic events and Eastern Sirte basin share similar source rock distribution, maturation and migration paths problems, which are possibly effected by the same tectonic events of the Paleozoic time. Also the three reigns (Kufra, Murzuq, and Eastern Sirte Basin) having the primary reservoir as clastic sediments of mostly unidentified Cambro-Ordovician units. The seismic resolution is highly influenced by the facies distribution and digenesis in the light of the lack of age determination where sand is setting on different sand of probably of different age and origin similarly in the three regions. Recent studies in Eastern Sirte basin chemostratigraphy analysis results shows an encouraging findings which can be applied to both Murzuq and Kufra basins. Source rocks analysis and hypothesis can be extended from both areas in Easter Sirte basin and Murzuq basin to better enhance our understanding of the source rock presence, maturation and migration time to the Kufra basin.
