Title: Assessment of undiscovered conventionally recoverable petroleum resources of Northwestern, Central, and Northeastern Africa (including Morocco, northern and western Algeria, northwestern Tunisia, Mauritania, Mali, Niger, eastern Nigeria, Chad, Central African Republic, Sudan, Ethiopia, Somalia, and southeastern Egypt)

Abstract

This report was prepared as part of the World Energy Resources Program of the US Geological Survey (USGS). The objective of the study is to assess the undiscovered conventionally recoverable resources within the petroleum producing provinces. The study utilizes geological and petroleum engineering data, in conjunction with statistical techniques, to estimate undiscovered resources by a process involving a team of geologists and statisticians. The estimates represent the views of the US Geological Survey estimating team and should not be regarded as an official Department of the Interior position. 21 figures, 2 tables.
