The secondary exploration target was to prove petroleum in Late to Middle Triassic
reservoir rocks (Tuben and Snadd formation), depending on the well result in the primary target.
The creature, closely related to the plesiosaur with its long neck, was about 10ft long and lived during the Middle Triassic
period when the first dinosaurs ruled the earth.
In these ranges the Upper Permian to Middle Triassic
is represented by mixed siliciclastic carbonate sediments, named (in ascending order) the Chhidru, Mianwali, and Tredian formations.
Remains of the Late Carboniferous to Permian molasse basins rarely overlie the Variscan basement unconformably (Cassinis and Ronchi, 2002), forming a more than 300 m thick succession that locally (SE Sardinia) also includes thin Middle Triassic
deposits (<50 m) (Costamagna and Barca, 2002).

Kirchaou sands at a depth of 2,460 m.

Flora and Climatic changes in the Western Salt Range, Pakistan, based on Palynological data.
Previously reported lonchorhynchine trematosaurids all date from the Early and early Middle Triassic
, but two clades of Trematosauridae are now known to range into the Late Triassic (Schoch and Milner 2000; Sues and Schoch 2013).
Large, robust Cruziana from the Middle Triassic
of Northeastern British Columbia: ethologic, biostratigraphic, and paleobiologic significance.
The researchers looked at the global distribution of predatory marine vertebrates and their body size in the Early and Middle Triassic
and came to surprising conclusions.
In a previous study from 2004, Hochuli and Feist-Burkhardt documented different, but clearly related flowering-plant-like pollen from the Middle Triassic
in cores from the Barents Sea, south of Spitsbergen.
It lived during the Middle Triassic
period, about 10 million to 15 million years earlier than the oldest confirmed dinosaurs.
