Abstract

In North Belgium, unusually thick Namurian strata are shown to be related to the existence of a deep basin. The presence of a listric growth fault is demonstrated in the Upper Carboniferous, somewhat limiting the Namurian Basin. The associated roll-over structure may contain sandstones with sufficient porosity to become an attractive exploration target for gas.
