The aim of the TaskForceMajella is to construct an integrated three dimensional model of
the Montagna della Majella (Central Apennines, Italy) as a Reservoir Analogue,
comprising sequence stratigraphy, and tectonic features including fault and fracture
networks. Furthermore, forward and backward modelling exersices are conducted of the
evolution of the structure in order to investigate into the relation beteen 3D mass
balancing, geometrical properties, and fracture network formation, propagation, and
remobilisation.

The project is set up as a scientific collaboration between Eni-Agip and University and
Research Institutes, is co-sponsored by Norsk-Hydro and is being conducted during a
four years time-span (mid 1999 mid 2003) by fifty researchers and students.
The Task Force is based in a dedicated office at Ortona for data base management and
cartographic work, where the geological and geophysical exercises are performed.
During the field trip of the Inaugural meeting of SFERA some of the main geological
features of the Montagna della Majella will be illustrated.
A series of photographs, originating from the TFM Website, are hereby presented, which
give an overview of some of the main geological features in the area, on various scales
and regarding different segments of the anticline.

Panorama from the North of the Montagna della Majella and of Caramanico Terme. The panorama shows a
general view of the normal fault plane cutting the western segment of the anticline, with an offset of about
3 km’s.

Dip-slip normal fault plane in Miocene biocalcarenites of the Bolognano Fm. Note the fault plane texture,
relation between slip -parallel fracture swarms at high angle to the fault, slip parallel metre scale undulations
on the fault plane, relation between the latter two (fracture swarms within hanging-wall convex
undulations), low permeability cm-scale impermeable mylonitic fault core, orthogonal to slip high angel
fractures.
Località (3): Cerratina; Direction:090
Transpressive fault zone in porous Miocene biocalcarenites of the Bolognano Fm. The fault zone is
laterally confined by sharp slip surfaces separating it from the relatively unfractured thickly bedded host
rock.

Petroleum. Cassius felix ca de petroleo. Petroleum est oleum petrae
Invenitur autem in locis furfureis. Fit enim cum peguendo terrae et aliqua
actione calores ad igneas convenitur partes. Invenitur etiam super lapides
quod quidem per eos refudat et in eis est. Et super mare invenitur.
Chapter 101.
Petroleum. Cassius felix reports in a chapter on petroleum. Petroleum is
an oil from rock But it is found in dry and slaty places. It is created when
there is an abundance of fat earth which transforms into fiery parts
through the action of heat. It can even be found on rocks since it flows
back over and into them and is within them. And it is found upon the sea.

From: Forbes, R.J. (1958); “Studies in Early Petroleum History”, E.J. De Bril, Leiden (NL), p.37, Fig. 6;

drawing from the pharmacological handbook of 1491 is in black and white, and was coloured for this
volume. The accompanying text (see top of this page) was transliterated and translated for this occasion
from Latin to Dutch by Elma and Marc de Hoon with the kind assistance of Marija van Dijk, and
successively into English by J.P. van Dijk. It cites the views of Cassius Felix of Carthage, a Roman
physician who lived about 450 AD, who represents the direct link between Dr. Joannes Platearius (and of
others of the eleventh century Salernian school such as Avicenna, “Ibn Sînâ) and ancient Greek and
Roman medicine (Forbes, op. cit., p. 101-102).

The image shows pressure changes in response to a well test simulated in a fracture network model
consisting of major faults (based on fracture maps of the Alpine fault in New Zealand) and stochastic
background fractures.
