Bhutan

Regions

Bhutan is entirely within the eastern Himalayas mountain range. The Himalayas represent the folded and thrusted remains of deposits within the Tethyan ocean, that lay between the Eurasian plate and the Indo-Australian plate. These are combined with Precambrian and Palaeozoic basement rocks of the southern edge of the Tibetan block of Eurasia.

Collision began about 65 million years ago at which time oceanic crust began to subduct and then thrust over the Tibetan block to produce the complex tectonics of the mountain range we see today. The Indian plate continues to be driven below the Tibetan Plateau, which is forcing the mountains higher and the plateau upwards.  

Consequently Globalshift regards Bhutan to have no oil and gas potential.
