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 still above sea level with the age progressively decreasing from east to west. The western offshore area of the Comoros is underlain by a distal part of the Rovuma basin where turbidite fans are present that are productive of gas in Mozambique. However this basin does not reach as far east as the offshore waters of Mayotte and Globalshift considers the country to have no petroleum potential.
