The Tethyan region is a major petroleum province. The paleogeographic position and tectonic history is a major control on sedimentation across the region, and this has influenced the sequestration of hydrocarbons in the region. The North African-Arabian plate evolved along the Tethyan margins (Proto-Tethys, Paleo-Tethys, Neo-Tethys) from Pre-Cambrian to Recent. Paleogeographic maps have been reconstructed for selected time intervals: Cambrian, Late Ordovician, Early Devonian, Early Permian, Permian-Triassic boundary, Norian, Callovian, Aptian, Cretaceous-Cenozoic boundary, and Late Eocene. For each time interval both the general picture of the major plate tectonic configuration and a detail of the paleogeography and paleoenvironment of...
