A Proven Target
Triassic dolomite contains and produces oil in Israel in the Meged oil field about 15 km away from the New Ofek License. The production is out of similar formations to the oil producing Palmyra formations in Syria.
Oil produced from Triassic dolomite is of high gravity 42 API and with associated gas. Common production mechanism is gas-lift.
Extensive and thick Triassic beds in center/northern Israel typically result encouraging petro-physical calculations estimates.
Based on recent regional basin analysis, the Triassic rock section in northern Israel may have considerably better porosity and permeability and may be in a regionally higher structural position than the structures in central Israel. These conditions provide potentially greater chances for successful exploration in the Northern Israel Triassic.
