27-28 October 2017
Field Trip: Reservoir Scales and Heterogeneities and their Impact on Project Decisions
Date: 27 — 28 October 2017
Field Trip Location: Northern Huqf Gharif Formation (Clastics)
Field Trip Registration Fee: $1450 (includes transportation, all f&B and camping equipment)
Registration Deadline: 24 September 2017
Field development requires certain decisions to be made depending on field life and each decision will require a specific type of model. The field trip will focus on aspects of sediment body geomentry, facies and linked reservoir properties as well as field scale barriers and baffles.
The Upper Gharif Formation is composed of fluvial sandstones with an overlying incised valley fill estuarine sequence leading to transgression of Khuff Carbonates. Stacking of channels, net to gross and potential barriers and baffles can be observed in these outcrops as well as facies variations.
Day 1: Travel to Northern Huqf by 4x4 vehicle and investigate outcrops. Camp overnight.
Day 2: Northern Huqf outcrops. Return to Muscat
