The Kurdamir-Topkhana field of Kurdistan is a carbonate oil and gas reservoir that was deposited in a passive margin ramp setting during the Oligocene. It is dominated by alternations of grainstone/boundstone/rudstone and packstone/wackestone beds. Reflux dolomitization early in the Miocene has noticeably increased, in places, both the porosity and connectivity of at least the Upper reservoir interval, as interpreted from seismic inversion data. The Lower reservoir interval was less affected by dolomitization and exhibits good porosity development within individual clinoforms, but much poorer connectivity between clinoforms. The entire reservoir interval is located within two anticlinal four-way closures formed above the roof thrust of an anti-formal stack developed within deeper Mesozoic carbonates; much of the observed fracture network is a result of this deformation. Modelling this complex reservoir presents significant challenges, not least because of the interdependency of many of the reservoir’s key characteristics.

The depositional and diagenetic history of the reservoir was determined through the study of several cores cut from the wells drilled in the field along with an understanding of the regional setting. A 3D seismic survey was inverted for acoustic impedance and the presence of gas-filled porosity can be imaged through the AI volume. Combining the understanding gleaned from the core and seismic data with the fracture data from borehole image logs, a detailed reservoir model was built. The strategy and conceptual models used for building this geostatistical model will be presented, along with our interim products and the lessons we have learned thus far on combining data of different scales.

Understanding fractures and fracture networks is absolutely vital for determining the best places to drill and for pinpointing sweet spots. Fracture characterization is also important for optimizing completion and production, both in vertical and horizontal wells. In mudrocks and shale plays, understanding fractures as well as the geomechanical properties is an important part of the well design.

Welcome to an interview with Stephen Sturm, whose work with fractures and fractured reservoirs spans many of the world's shale plays.

When Occidental Petroleum Corporation was reorganized in 1959, its total oil production was some 100 barrels per day. By the time Moammar Gaddaffi nationalized the industry in 1969, Oxy Libya, the wholly owned subsidiary, was producing 800,000 barrels per day. Such an amount made Oxy Libya the eighth largest producer in the world.

When one of us joined Royal Dutch Shell in 1980, seven out of 27 young professionals in the basic training course were Swiss – a remarkable number of students from a tiny country that does not produce oil or gas. The term “Swiss mafia” was coined by our Dutch colleagues, and it wasn’t meant in a complimentary sense.

The talk gives a broad interview to this structurally complex country, which possesses a transform fault comparable to the San Andres. The section on petroleum history also contains structural geology, petroleum geochemistry and sedimentology. There are also some interesting sidelights to history and politics of the Myanmar people. This talk was presented last year in Melbourne, AUS and published in an online journal of the AAPG. The geopolitics are quite interesting, and I know a lot about it, since I was working there during Aung San Suu Chi's Democracy Movement in 1988-1989.

Our ability to predict reservoir presence or map net reservoir in clastic depositional systems is dependent on our understanding of the depositional geometries of the various depositional systems and the variation of patterns within those systems. The processes associated with sediment delivery and sediment dispersal is the fundamental control on the architectural geometry of a depositional system. The processes associated with the interplay between sediment input and accommodation space are the fundamental controls on the lateral and vertical stacking patterns within that geometry.

The geometry of the depositional system is similar regardless of the depositional location or scale. As such, the patterns within the geometries are also similar, and, therefore, predictable. This is a powerful concept that the interpreter can use in predicting depositional geometries and patterns. Whether the reservoir being studied was deposited on land or on a submarine fan, or whether it is 100’s of kilometers in scale or a kilometer, the geometry of the deposit is similar. Therefore, interpreters need only become familiar with the basic geometries of clastic depositional systems and the patterns that occur within those geometries.

Modern and outcrop analogs will be used, along with subsurface examples to provide the interpreter with a sound understanding of the reservoir distribution and quality, both laterally and vertically of the clastic depositional systems most commonly encountered as oil and gas reservoirs. The course is exercise-oriented and taught in PowerPoint format. A course manual is provided. The exercises in this course are designed to give you a strong working knowledge of the many depositional settings you are likely to encounter in your career. They are aimed at helping you to learn how to recognize them from well logs, and how to map them.

The modern carbonate-evaporite depositional environments along the Abu Dhabi shoreline and offshore Abu Dhabi belong to the few areas of the world where the geoscientist can observe the interplay between carbonate and evaporite sedimentation.

Supratidal (sabkha) to intertidal and shallow subtidal (microbial mat and peloid-skeletal tidal-flat) environments will be studied in the vicinity of Al-Qanatir Island.

Al-Qanatir Island

In the vicinity of the road to Al-Qanatir Island participants will be able to study a complete and undisturbed lateral facies succession from the upper supratidal to the lower intertidal and shallow subtidal:

  • Upper supratidal stranded beach ridges
  • Topographic highs, some cm above the adjacent upper sabkha environment
  • Upper sabkha (upper supratidal)
  • Surface covered by polygonally-cracked halite crust
  • Middle sabkha (middle supratidal)
  • Surface covered by finely-crystalline, whitish anhydrite polygons
  • Lower sabkha (lower supratidal)
  • Surface covered by shiny, sparkling gypsum crystals
  • Upper to lower intertidal microbial mat
  • Crenulated or crinkled microbial mat above gypsum mush facies
  • Blistered and pinnacle microbial mat
  • Polygonal and tufted microbial mat
  • Lowermost intertidal to shallow sub-tidal
  • Peloid-skeletal tidal-flat

Many of these depositional environments and facies successions correspond to those observed in cores from the subsurface of the Arabian Peninsula.

The main objective of this field trip is to offer participants the opportunity to study the structural style and fracturing of carbonate rocks analogous to reservoir units of the globally important UAE Oil Province. The clear exposure of these carbonate rocks in this tectonically complicated area provides a significant opportunity to study and explain the structural style and deformation history of the region. Although the carbonate rocks exposed in Jebal Hafit area are of Early Eocene–Miocene age (Rus, Dammam and Asmari Formations), the emphasis here is to study fractures pattern and fracturing mechanism with relation to the paleostress and the link to fractures conductivity.

The selected stops will demonstrate the stratigraphic relationship of the rock units and their fracture systems that have been developed during long geological deformation. There are significant similarities between these exposed rocks and those units seen in the Abu Dhabi Oil Fields by means of reservoir characteristics and fracture system and fracture related diagenesis (cementation/host rock alteration) with its impact on sealing potential.

Jebal Hafit, an elongated asymmetrical, double‐plunging, NNW‐SSW trending anticline with an elevation reaches up to ~ 1140 m high, is situated at the border between Oman and UAE. It extends ca 30 km in the direction NNW–SSE with average width of 4 to 5 km.
