Oil in Jordan?

From a very informative post by Dr Abu-Jaber of Yarmouk University on the possibility of Oil Fields in Jordan. As you can see in the map, about 66% of the oil in the world is concentrated in what is called the "Oil Corridor" - which results from the collision of 2 tectonic plates.
Unfortunately, Jordan is not on this corridor - but the possibility of "some oil" is present.


  1. Wow most of the "corridor" seems to be in Iran!

  2. Ramadan Kareem.

    p.s. If you are not Muslim, Happy September!
