Digital outcrop models (DOM’s) represent a relatively new tool for incorporating high resolution information on heterogeneity from outcrops into subsurface reservoir models.

Microporosity occurs throughout Arab Formation carbonates of Saudi Arabia, and affects the log response, fluid flow properties and ultimate recoveries of reservoirs in these rocks.

This presentation focuses on heterogeneity caused by lithologic changes in the most prolific reservoir interval in the world, the Arab-D, and highlights the impact of dolomitization on reservoir performance.

This study presents a new approach to pre-drill reservoir quality prediction that involves the integration of a variety of modelling techniques to understand, quantify and predict the geological processes that control reservoir quality.

Reservoir quality is the main attribute that controls well productivity and field-wide performance. Yet, even though oil companies have invested significantly in techniques to understand and predict reservoir quality, it still remains a significant challenge and source of investment risk for the industry.

Channel belts are the principle reservoirs in fluvial systems. The degree to which these belts are merged or separated is a critical determiner for reservoir volumes. The degree to which reservoirs within belts are connected is equally critical.

The linkage of process to stratigraphic expression is based primarily upon the observation that modern depositional patterns replicate in the ancient. Uniformitarianism implies that this commonality in pattern translates to a commonality in causal mechanism.

The Arctic has experienced significant plate motion from Cretaceous to present, and because of the ambiguities in the oceanic signature, resolving the most likely kinematic history is critical in understanding paleogeography and hence reservoir and source distribution. I will show a 3-stage kinematic model which, while not a unique solution, seems to best satisfy the known constraints.

The generation of point bars by lateral accretion during lateral expansion and downstream translation of river meanders is a well described process, and a primary means for generation of sandy bar reservoirs within fluvial strata. Further examination of this process in modern and ancient settings points, however, to a wide variation on this simple theme.

The search for unconventional hydrocarbons is not new. It’s true that almost 100 years separated the early exploration successes in the synclinal valleys of Central Pennsylvania, to the exploitation of Coal-Bed Methane in a number of basins in the U.S. and Canada in the 1980’s. Since the 1980's, however, a quiet revolution began which by today has seen several waves of unconventional resources being pursued with economic success. Coal-bed methane was followed by the search for Center-Basin Gas, Shale Gas and most recently, Liquid-rich Shales (some of which aren't shales).

Known worldwide for its spectacular geology, the key geological units in the stratigraphy of Oman are exposed in the Muscat area. It is only a short distance to some excellent outcrops ranging from the Permo-Triassic basement to the Permo-Triassic sequence and the Semail Ophiolite found in the oceanic crust and upper mantle emplaced on the autochthonous Mesozoic carbonate succession of the Oman margin during the Late Cretaceous.

Many factors and processes contribute to imparting an extraordinary complexity to carbonate reservoirs and source rocks. This unique complexity makes exploration and production of the huge petroleum resources hosted in carbonate sequences a very challenging task. This meeting follows the success of the conference held in Naples in April 2014 and aims at bringing together experts of different disciplines from the academia and the oil and gas industry. We invite you to share your experience on new approaches, new tools and new ways of integrating geological and geophysical information that can help in reducing the uncertainties related to the characterization and modeling of carbonate sequences and reservoirs.
