Abstract

The Paleozoic series in southern Tunisia were affected by tectonic activities that generated reservoir structures. Petrophysical parameters show that Upper Permian carbonates have a poor reservoir quality due to diagenetic processes, the lack of hydrocarbon can be explained by the erosion of such Silurian, Devonian and Permian source rocks related to Caledonian and Hercynian orogenesis.
