I. Introduction. The great Hungarian Plain or Alföld first attracted the atten­tion of the oil exploring' geologists, when it was proved that the inner rim of the Carpathians, in contrast to Galicia, was unfit for greater accumulations of oil owing to its extremely indeterminate structure. Geological investigations succeeded in discovering traces of oil in the Kárpátalja, natural gas in Transsylvania and in the
