North Africa contains 4% of the World's remaining oil and gas reserves, and is now one of the most active exploration areas. Included are papers on the petroleum geology of Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya and the western part of Egypt. The book aims to increase the level of information for such a major petroleum province and to help with the use of analogues between North Africa and other areas.
