Getting out in the field and being able to touch, see and feel the objects of your training makes for the best possible experience. AAPG field seminars are designed to maximize your time and travel with a combination of field work, lecture and class work.

Field Seminar
Al-Khobar, Saudi Arabia
Wednesday, 3 February 2021, 7:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m.

Date: 3rd February 2021 Time: 7am – 4pm Field Trip Leaders: Mohammed Masrahy and Fawaz Al Khaldi, Saudi Aramco Registration Fee: $95 Registration Deadline: 16th December 2020 Field Trip Description Analogues, especially ancient outcrop and modern analogues, have played a crucial role in improving the understanding of subsurface reservoir architectural elements. They provide important information on subsurface reservoir geobody size, geometry, and potential connectivity, which all contribute to better reservoir characterization, mainly in highly heterogeneous siliciclastic or carbonate reservoirs that require the integration and detailed analysis of petrophysics, facies, diagenesis, geometry, depositional environments and lateral and vertical variability. Subsurface reservoir models are limited by available geological data. Outcrop and modern analogs from comparable systems provide additional input to geological models of the subsurface. This field trip will provide valuable insights into the nature of this complexity. Aims and Objectives The field trip will comprise a field study of a range of continental clastic modern systems and marine carbonate ancient systems, and related sedimentary facies, each of which possesses attributes that are comparable in part to the subsurface deposits. Field trip attendees will gain knowledge about key competencies related to field geology such as measuring vertical sections, describing sedimentary structures and textures, describing sedimentary facies, identifying depositional environments, and linking sedimentological observations to subsurface reservoir modeling. One specific aim of this field trip is to emphasize that integrated reservoir characterization and modeling processes take into account actual depositional trends and the distribution of the sedimentary bodies. Intended Learning Outcomes This field trip will provide explanations and discussions of the following aspects: Basin age, mechanisms of tectonic development, and regional palaeogeographic setting. An introduction to techniques and criteria for the recognition of continental (fluvial and aeolian systems), shallow marine and carbonate related sedimentary facies in outcrop and modern system and discussions of the application of these techniques to the study of subsurface sedimentology and geological modeling. Discussions of the 1D, 2D and 3D facies architecture with particular consideration of the geometry and scale of key stratal bodies that have relevance for understanding subsurface hydrocarbon reservoirs. Discussion of the nature of autocyclic (intrinsic) interactions between competing sedimentary processes and consideration of the implications of these in terms of reservoir quality. Discussion of the nature of allocyclic (external) controls on sedimentary processes and consideration of the effects of temporal and spatial changes in these controls on the preserved succession (through introduction of sequence stratigraphic concepts). The significance of accurately determining the preserved geometry of reservoir successions and how to undertake correlations at the interwell scale. How to predict the 3D distribution of net versus non-net reservoir. How best to make region-wide predictions in areas for which palaeogeography is poorly constrained.

Field Trip Organizer: Dhahran Geoscience Society Field Trip Leader: Mohammed Masrahy Date: 4 February 2021 Time: 15.30 – 17.00 (GST/GMT+4) Fee: Free of Charge Field Trip Description Over the past two decades, there have been major developments in the efforts to quantify the architectural elements, geometry, and dimensions of depositional bodies from analogues to provide quantitative input to geological models. Analogues, especially ancient outcrops and modern analogues have played a crucial role in improving the understanding of subsurface reservoir architectural elements. They provide important information on subsurface reservoir geobodies size, geometry, and potential connectivity, which all contribute to better reservoir characterization. This is especially vital for highly heterogeneous siliciclastic or carbonate reservoirs that require the integration and detailed analysis of reservoir petrophysical properties, facies, diagenesis, geometry, depositional environments and lateral and vertical variability. Robust subsurface reservoir models heavily rely on the available geological input data. Outcrop and modern analogue data from comparable systems provide additional input to geological models of the subsurface. This virtual field trip will provide valuable insights into the nature of this complexity. Aims and Objectives The virtual field trip comprises a field study of a range of continental clastic modern systems and related sedimentary facies, each of which possesses attributes that are comparable in part to the subsurface deposits. Virtual field trip attendees will gain knowledge about key competencies related to field geology, such as understanding the geomorphology of continental systems, seeing examples that explain sedimentary structures, textures, and facies, identifying depositional environments, and linking sedimentological observations to subsurface reservoir modeling. One specific aim of this virtual field trip is to emphasize that integrated reservoir characterization and modeling processes take into account actual depositional trends and distribution of the sedimentary bodies (sediment-body geometry and heterogeneity), through the understanding of modern analogues settings. Intended Learning Outcomes This virtual field trip will provide insights and offer discussions of the following aspects: An introduction to techniques and criteria for the recognition of continental (fluvial and aeolian systems), and related sedimentary facies in modern system and discussions of the application of these techniques to the study of subsurface sedimentology and geological modeling. 1D, 2D and 3D facies architecture with particular consideration of the geometry and scale of key stratal bodies that have relevance for understanding subsurface hydrocarbon reservoirs. The nature of autocyclic (intrinsic) interactions between competing sedimentary processes and consideration of the implications of these in terms of reservoir quality. The nature of allocyclic (external) controls on sedimentary processes and consideration of the effects of temporal and spatial changes in these controls on the preserved successions. The significance of accurately determining the preserved geometry of reservoir successions and performing correlations at the interwell scale. 3D prediction of the distribution of net versus non-net reservoir.

Field Trip Organizer: Geological Society of Oman Field Trip Leader: Husam Al Rawahi Date: 21 February 2021 Time: 12.30 – 14.30 (GST / GMT+4) Fee: $55 Member / $65 Non-member The Al Khawd Formation is a siliciclastic deposit of the late Cretaceous age exposed in the Muscat area. This formation unconformably overlies a spectacular ophiolite succession, which includes deep-oceanic sediments, intrusives and volcanics. The Al Khawd Formation is mainly composed of conglomerates featuring ophiolite, chert, carbonate and quartzite pebbles derived from the Semail ophiolite itself, the Hawasina imbricates and the Al Hajar Mountains. Abundant fossilised wood and even fragments of dinosaur, turtle and crocodile bones can be found in the Al Khawd Formation in these areas. In this vitual fieldtrip, we will focus on the erosion and sedimentation patterns in the period following ophiolite obduction and the ophiolite sequence in Muscat. Register Here

The Oman ophiolites emplacement on top of northern Oman mountains started in about the Turonian time (~90 Ma) and was concluded during the Campanian time (~80Ma). This emplacement of the Oman ophiolites was part of a regional closure of the neo-tethys ocean. Oman ophiolite displacement is estimated to have moved ~400km away from its original location below sea floor. This presentation is aimed at taking you in a virtual fieldtrip to zoom into a window in the geological history of northern Oman mountains, specifically the Oman ophiolite emplacement period. We will virtually visit different outcrops of the Oman ophiolites that tells the emplacement process story. Register Here
