Many companies are taking a pro-active stance toward new technology and have assembled teams to scout and implement new techniques and technologies in their operations. Please meet Mike Party, part of the Emerging Technology Team at Hess. Mike speaks to us today about the quest for the breakthrough technologies. Mike will be presenting at AAPG's Success with Difficult Unconventionals, Nov 12-13, in Houston.

AAPG Event Abu Dhabi Abu Dhabi United Arab Emirates 30 January, 2020 Sedimentology and Stratigraphy, Carbonates 8:00 AM 3:00 PM 24 July, 2019
 
Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates
30 January 2020
Date: January 30th, 2020
Time: 8am – 3pm
Start/Return Point: Abu Dhabi
Equipment Required: Sturdy boots/shoes, sun protection (hat, sunglasses, sun-cream, etc.).
Fitness: Most places require light walking (100s meters / comparatively flat). Sabkha outcrop will involve some wading in ankle-deep water/mud.
Field Trip Leaders: Hesham Shebl, Ibrahim Al Ali and Hani El Sahn

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.

The analysis of modern analogs is one of the few means by which high-resolution spatial complexity of stratigraphic systems can be described. If the horizontal dimensions of facies belts are less than the typical well spacing, modern analogs, together with seismic and production data help to construct realistic geologic and simulation models of subsurface reservoirs.

Supratidal (sabkha) to intertidal (microbial mat), and lowermost intertidal to shallow subtidal (lagoon: skeletal-peloid tidal-flat) environments will be studied along the Abu Dhabi coastline 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 of the upper supratidal to the shallow subtidal environments:

  • 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 subtidal.
    • Peloid-skeletal tidal-flat.

This trip provides an insight into recent to modern evaporitic coastal depositional systems, that can be considered analogues to parts of the Mesozoic reservoir systems of the Middle East (e.g. intra-Arab & Hith anhydrites).

Join a SIG

 
The function of the Visiting Geoscientist Program SIG is to provide college and university students worldwide a balanced picture of geosciences in the petroleum, energy minerals, and environmental industries; provide information about careers in the geosciences; present a positive image of a geoscience professional; and encourage geoscience career options for young scientists of high caliber. These goals will be achieved through direct student contact during college and university visits by active geoscientists. To maintain active status as a VG, each committee member must complete at least one visit per fiscal year. This program is funded through the generosity of the Visiting Geoscientists, their companies, the AAPG Foundation and AAPG.
