The Raman Oil Field is an east-west trending double plunging anticline located in southeast Turkey. The Raman Structure is bordered by a major reverse fault extending along the southern steep flank. The Raman anticline, as a structurally controlled topographic high, is in the foothills belt of the Taurus-Zagros mountain chains. During much of the Palozonic and Mesozoic periods, the study area was in the unstable shelf region.The productive Mardin Reservoir Interval (Karababa “c” member) is…
