...Rushdi Said; M. A. Basiouni Abstract The distribution of foraminifers in Miocene marls and limestones of the Wadi Feiran and Abu Zenima areas and in other localities leads to the conclusion that the Miocene embayment in the Suez gulf region (Egypt) was separated from the epicontinental Tethys sea...

... attempted only recently ( Figure 1 ). Oil has been found on the fringe of the Delta (West Abu Qir, Tineh and Mango fields), and the potential exists for the discovery of oil in other parts of the Nile Delta and Mediterranean region ( Moussa and Matbouly, 1994 ). Rifting in the Gulf of Suez began...

...F. J. Souaya Abstract This work is based on the examination of some 500 samples from four different Miocene sections in the Gulf of Suez region. It introduces and defines seven assemblage zones, five subzones and ten zonules. Through the use of these biostratigraphic units, various correlations...
