Abstract

Evaluation of existing Previous HitmagnetometricTop, gravimetric, seismic and well data indicates that a large basin, some 300 km long, 100 km wide and up to 13.5 km deep, occupies the greater part of the Sinai-Israel offshore area. The basin, referred to here as the Pleshet Basin, is flanked by a series of magnetic and gravimetric anomalies, interpreted as being caused by basement highs.
