The Cretaceous-Paleogene limestone sequence sealed by the Oligocene flysch is the main oil target in focus of exploration along Albanides thrust belt. The later represents a segment of Alpine folding chain, situated between Dinarides and Hellenides. Enormous geological-geophysical data and complex syntheses performed so far have brought about discovering of some oilfields and depiction of many prospects. On the other hand, many wells drilled on some surface flysch folds or only on seismic events have resulted dry. What's happened? Why even many foreign oil companies have failed in Albania? The best response comes out from reconsideration of many exploration concepts, methodises and techniques in the course of acquisition, processing and interpretation of the all gained complex data
