Mehmet Ozan Sungurlu, the Legendary of Turkish Petroleum Geologist

Oguz Mulayim

Abstract. On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the Republic of Türkiye, I would like to pay tribute to M. Ozan Sungurlu (1939–1990), the most important Turkish field and petroleum geologist. He pioneered geological observations throughout Türkiye. His scientific work was published in several articles, many of which were co-authored by Turkish academic geologists. His work (TPAO report no 871) on Southeast Türkiye is considered a classic and was enriched by his detailed geological map. This article was written in memory and appreciation of M. Ozan Sungurlu, who made a great contribution to the petroleum geology of Türkiye and whose sectoral importance in the world is undisputed.
