In this study an attempt has been made to evaluate the hydrocarbon prospectivity of Central Tripura. The geological factors, surface exposures, geochemical anomalies, seismic expressions have been studied and were correlated with distribution pattern of gas fields in Bangladesh. Discoveries of oil and gas in and around of the study area have been studied and prospects have been analyzed in light of various geological and geophysical risks associated with them. The exploration efforts which were mostly confined to the synclinal areas are now gradually getting shifting towards the anticlines. The integrated study proposed in this study can help us to prepare a road map for exploration in the north east part of India.
