Abstract: 

Masjed-e-Soleyman (M.I.S) is seismically an active area. The earthquakes with magnitude of 4 to 5 in Richter scale occurred in this region during 1382 and 1383. In order to evaluate the earthquake hazard in the area, distribution of active faults was investigated, because tectonically active faults can cause devastating earthquakes in the study region, (e.g. the Andika earthquake Mb=6.3 in 1380). In this paper, the faults around Masjed-e-Soleyman as far as 80 Km were studied. With one exception, all of them were reverse faults. According to calculations, the magnitude of earthquake which resulted from the activity of these faults range from 6.4 to 7 in Richter scale. The maximum of horizontal acceleration resulting from these earthquakes equals to 0.3g. The maximum of vertical acceleration resulting from these earthquakes equals to 0.15 g. At present gas seepage is a great problem in this city
Masjed-e-Soleyman hydrocarbon reservoir has an unsafe and weak cap rock. The presence of old gas seepages before drilling in reservoir shows that cap rock cannot prevent gas seepages from the reservoir. Because the most gas seepage locations are in the urban area, the occurrence of earthquake will be accompanied by fire in Masjed-e-Soleyman. Therefore, the problem of earthquake critical management in this city requires special attention.
