Tethys Petroleum derives its name from the Tethys Ocean, which covered Central Asia and surrounding areas some 250 million years ago. Many of the rocks, which were deposited in this ocean, now contain some of the world's largest oil and gas fields in Central Asia – Tethys Petroleum's focus area. Once the Tethys Ocean closed, it created the mountain chains of the Himalayas to the Alps. Today the only parts remaining of the Tethys Ocean are the Mediterranean Sea, the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea. The Tethys Ocean was named after the mythical Greek goddess Tethys, a Titaness and sea goddess who had 3,000 children, being mother of the chief rivers of the world. Tethys is also a moon of the planet Saturn.
