Title: Oil Possibilities in Italian East Africa

Author(s): A. Belluigi (2)


Although surface showings of petroleum in Abyssinia are a matter of record, the structural conditions ordinarily considered favorable and necessary for the accumulation of commercial deposits are absent. The sedimentary rocks seem to lack domes and anticlines, but folds and reservoir traps may be found where thrusting and compression have affected the younger strata in coastal zones or in depressions of the old and solid massif of Abyssomaliland. Oil reservoirs may be found along geosynclinal boundary faults.
