A Review of Oil Potentials in the Triassic-Jurassic Rocks in West Bank and Jordan Indicating Sites for Future Exploration

Sa’d H. S. Basha


Triassic-Jurassic rocks are either outcropping along the Eastern side of the Dead Sea- Zerqa River up to Jerash Bridge or mostly penetrated in West Bank and north and northeast of Jordan. Some oil shows have been reported from deeply drilled wells.

Areas of future oil exploration probably occurre in the West Bank north of Daya well (in Israel) towards Halhul and north of the Wadi Huni between S-90 and Kh-1 wells in Jordan.
