Drones are currently being used in many applications, including pipeline and tank inspections, as well as methane leaks and seeps. Money is being saved. Resources are being discovered. But, behind the use of most drones and UAVs is the issue of safely and legally operating beyond the visual line of sight (BVLOS). Welcome to an interview with Jim Cieplak, who talks to us today about his work with Harris Corporation and BVLOS solutions.

Wadi Al Khoud exposes a number of tectonostratigraphic units, including autochthonous siliciclastic and carbonate sediments that range in age from late Cretaceous to Quaternary. The main deposits in the area are divided into four formations, the late Cretaceous clastics of the Al Khoud Conglomerate Formation and the shallow marine carbonate units of the Al Jafnyn (Umm Er Radhuma in the subsurface), Al Rusail (Rus in the subsurface) and Al Seeb (Dammam in the subsurface) formations. These rocks uncoformably overlie a spectacular ophiolite succession which includes deep-oceanic sediments. The Oman ophiolite was thrust over the northern margin of Oman during the late Cretaceous orogenic event, resulting in the development of new sedimentation patterns, faults and fractures.

This fieldtrip will cover three main stops in Al Khoud village:

Stop 1: Deep-oceanic sediments and ophiolite.

Stop 2: The unconformity between the Al Khoud Formation and Al Jafnyn Formation.

Stop 3: Shallow marine carbonate sediments of Al Jafnyn, Al Rusail and Al Seeb Formations.

Stop 4: (optional) Foraminifera Graveyard.

In this fieldtrip, we will focus our discussions on the reservoir characteristics, seal potential and tectonostratigraphic evolution of this part of Oman. There will be a brief mention of the dinosaur collection found within the Al Khoud Conglomerate Formation and mineral usage of the limestones (Seeb) and gypsum (Rus) in cement manufacturing. If lucky, shark teeth might be found in the carbonates of the Seeb Formation.
