Miocene deposits of the Carpathian Foredeep (according to results of oil and gas prospecting)

Piotr Karnkowski


The geology of the Miocene deposits in the central part of the Carpathian Foredeep is examined. The Neogene deposits from this area were subdivided into two units - the inner unit and the outer one. Between them the Zgłobice Unit was distinguished (J. Kottarczyk, 1988), overthrusted onto the parautochthonous unit in the western part of the foredeep. The litostratigraphic units of the Miocene formation, distinguished here, are correlatable with Miocene lithofacies from the northern margin of the Carpathian Foredeep. The problems of gas occurrences in the Miocene deposits of the autochthonous unit and sulphur findings in the Lower Badenian (Middle Miocene) series are discussed.
