Comoros

Regions

The Comoro islands are made up of volcanic islands over oceanic basement. These volcanic islands, together with mountains in the north of Madagascar, were formed in the late Cretaceous to Cenozoic as the Madagascar plate separated from Africa.

The island of Mayotte is the oldest of the Comoro islands (not part of the Comoros) still above sea level. The age progressively decreases from east to west with Grande Comore being the youngest and still volcanically active.

However the western offshore area of the Comoros is underlain by a distal part of the Rovuma basin. Here turbidite fans are present that are productive of gas in Mozambique although Globalshift considers oil potential is unlikely .
