The northern third of Luxembourg (the Oesling) is part of the Ardennes/Rhenish Shield of the Hercynian mountain belt extending through France, Belgium and Germany.
The southern two-thirds (the Gutland) includes Mesozoic sediments overlying the Palaeozoic basement. This is the northeastern tip of the Paris Basin.
Land-locked and mostly mountainous, Luxembourg has only limited sedimentary cover unaffected by uplift. Globalshift believes it almost certainly has no oil and gas potential being too distant from the source kitchen of the Paris Basin.
Luxembourg has no history of production although one exploration well was drilled into Paris basin sediments in 1960. Globalshift does not forecast any future production of oil or gas from the country.
