... the Jurassic to the Early Cretaceous and formed E-W–striking normal faults and basins such as the Fault of Chotts and Chotts Basin ( Guiraud et al., 1987 ; Ben Ferjani et al., 1990 ; Zouari et al., 1999 ; Soua et al., 2009 ). The second phase of rifting occurred during the Early Cretaceous and generated NW...

... sud-atlasique”), which extends across north Africa to the Atlantic coast at Agadir in Morocco. The latter feature has been shown variously in unreferenced proprietary reports to breakup west of Gabes, to connect with the Gafsa fault, or to pass through Chott Jerid and reach the coast just north...

... the west. This block is limited to the north by an east-west fault of the North Chott Chain and to the west (Jebel Fatnassa) by a NW-SE fault. This resistant block was affected during the Jurassic by diapirism of the Triassic salt ( Zargouni 1985 ). (2) The Gafsa area corresponds to a relatively...

..., and sedimentologic approaches. We extend these studies to the subsurface, employing seismic and well data addressing structures, sequence stratigraphy, and hydrocarbon potential. The basin structures are related to strike-slip fault systems associated with Triassic evaporites. Mesozoic sedimentary sections...

... is enhanced by the Late Albian sea level rise. Nevertheless, flourishing of metazoans that lead to the coral thrombolites was associated with an oxygenated and oligotrophic environment. Halokinetic dynamics and tilted-block fault systems provided conduits for nutrient-rich fluids and hydrocarbons which fueled...
