This three-day workshop builds on the success of the first AAPG Carbonate Reservoirs of the Middle East GTW, held in Abu Dhabi, UAE in 2015. It is dedicated to addressing the hydrocarbon bearing carbonate reservoirs of the Middle East, in the context of a changing oil market within a more challenging exploration and development environment. These challenges include the shift from traditional anticlinal traps to stratigraphic traps, and development strategies for dealing with maturing, long-producing, giant fields. Learn more.
The workshop will consist of two days comprised of presentations, poster sessions and core displays, followed by a third day offering optional field trips to either the Abu Dhabi Sabkha, or the tertiary outcrops of Jebel Hafit.
Session 1: New Play Concepts, Missed Opportunities and the Future of Carbonate Reservoir Exploration
Session 2: Sequence Stratigraphic Application in Exploration and Development
Session 3: Seismic Characterization and Mapping of Carbonate Reservoirs
Session 4: New Approaches to Geomechanics, Petrophysics, Diagenesis and Geochemistry
