Abstract Results of quantitative analysis of subsidence data from 20 wells covering six major basement blocks from the Sirte Basin (Libya) are presented. Following the Late Cretaceous onset of extension and associated collapse of the Sirte Arch, the tectonic history post-dating this event can be separated into four distinct phases: 1. (1) minor subsidence during the Late Cretaceous; 2. (2) differential fault tectonics and reactivation of basement faults during latest Cretaceous to Paleocene; 3… CONTINUE READING
