The majority of the mapped prospects offshore Lebanon are generally assumed to be filled by dry biogenic gas, like the adjacent Leviathan, Zohr and the many other discoveries in the Eastern Mediterranean.

However, a credible oil play from an oil-prone source rock suggest the potentiality of large oil fields offshore Lebanon. Recent 3D basin modelling, coupled with over 200 HC oil seeps observed across the north Levant Basin on Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) images, tells us that this basin is also generating oil at present.
