The Cretaceous period bore witness to one of the largest transgressions in the history of the earth. The global sea-level changes were controlled by the sea floor spreading and accretion of the oceanic ridges. In the northern platform margins of the Arabo-Nubian Craton (study area) the Cretaceous commenced by extension, rifting, volcanism and northwestward tilting. During the Senonian - Paleocene times compression, folding and uplifting, accompanied Tethyan closure (Flexer et al., 1986). The intrabasinal tectonic interplay between the Alpine orogenic belt and the Arabo-Nubian craton, molded the Syrian Arc folding system during the Late Cretaceous and Early Tertiary periods. (Figure 1). The folding system evolved a series of basins in which mainly carbonates were deposited. These geodynamic events during the Maastrichtian-Paleocene times, determined the environment deposition pattern, facies distribution and the thicknesses of the lithological units.
