Numerous, mainly small, oil discoveries have been made within the fore-land basins and fold and thrust belts of Georgia. The largest field in Georgia (Samgori) contained ~200 MMbbl (million barrels) recoverable reserves reservoired in fractured middle Eocene volcaniclastics—the main proven reservoir in Georgia—trapped in a compressional fold of the Achara-Trialet belt. Where the Achara-Trialet deformation extended into the foreland basins, frontal folds with Miocene–Pliocene clastic reservoirs are known to be oil-bearing (e.g., Supsa field). Within the foreland basins in areas unaffected by Neogene compression, structural closures related to pre-Neogene extensional faulting may include draping lower Miocene and Mesozoic reservoirs:...
