"The petroleum geology of southern Libya is featured in a new training film series on DVD. The series consists of 7 parts of 30-45 minutes each. Key sedimentary and plate tectonic events are featured based on extensive outcrop video footage combined with professional, animated 3D graphics, present-day facies analogue pictures and interviews with specialists. Desert film footage from the Murzuq and Kufra basins forms the core of the film project. Wrapped into fascinating scenes from landscapes such as the Akakus canyon labyrinth and typical Mamuniyat needle rocks, the viewer is taken on a comprehensive tour to the geological past of southern Libya, introducing all elements relevant to petroleum exploration in the region. Using a genetic, process-oriented approach, viewers are introduced step-by-step to the various depositional phases and their underlying driving mechanisms."--Film's Website.
