Mayotte

Regions

The island territory of Mayotte, part of the Comoro islands, is a volcanic island over oceanic basement. The Comoro 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 age of the Comoros progressively decreases from east to west and Mayotte is the oldest still above sea level. The western offshore area of the island chain 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.
