Hunting Hot Shales in Wadi Tanezzuft: Portrait of the Silurian Black Shale Source Rock of Libya

en Characteristics and Origin of the Silurian Source Rock in the Libyan Saharan Desert

The Silurian "hot shale" is the most important Palaeozoic hydrocarbon source rock in North Africa and Arabia.

The film gives an easily digestible, comprehensive overview of the characteristics and origin of this prominent black shale unit in Libya.

The current knowledge of the subject is presented in animated graphics, combined with outcrop video footage from the western margin of the SW Libyan Murzuq Basin.

Controlling mechanisms such as sea-level, palaeorelief and climate are discussed.

A predictive depositional model is proposed that distinguishes a lower from an upper hot shale.

Also featured in the film is a new field technique based on spectral gamma-ray measurements that for the first time allows mapping of the Silurian hot shale in Saharan outcrops.

Commonly, weathering destroys the organic matter and characteristic black colour of this unit on the desert surface making it complicated to identify by traditional techniques.

en Petroleum Geology of Southern Libya

The petroleum geology of southern Libya is featured in a new training film series on DVD.

The series consists of 7 parts of 30-45 minutes each.

Key sedimentary and plate tectonic events are featured based on extensive outcrop video footage combined with professional, animated 3D graphics, present-day facies analogue pictures and interviews with specialists.

Desert film footage from the Murzuq and Kufra basins forms the core of the film project.

Wrapped into fascinating scenes from landscapes such as the Akakus canyon labyrinth and typical Mamuniyat needle rocks, the viewer is taken on a comprehensive tour to the geological past of southern Libya, introducing all elements relevant to petroleum exploration in the region.

Using a genetic, process-oriented approach, viewers are introduced step-by-step to the various depositional phases and their underlying driving mechanisms.

The film is suitable as teaching material in Libyan and international academic institutions and will also help professional geologists working on southern Libyan petroleum and water projects.

Furthermore, the film will give non-geologists an idea of the geological background in the area, among them decision makers from the petroleum and water industry, Libyan nationals interested in the earth history of their home country as well as tourists.

Production of the film was kindly co-sponsored by the oil companies Hess Corporation, ConocoPhilips, ENI North Africa, Norsk Hydro and Statoil as well as the Academy of Graduate Studies (Tripoli).
