Immersion into Shuaiba Formation to Maximize Production

8-9 March 2021

The workshop will focus on the Aptian section of the Arabian Plate and will cover one of the main reservoirs in Thamama group (Shuaiba Formation). This part of the stratigraphic column is one of the most diverse regional stratigraphy which was likely the result of segmented basinal physiography during that time.

In several parts of the plate this section lies very moderate and drilling activity compared with other reservoirs which resulted in the very good data availability especially in well-structured areas. The section consists of known regional source (Bab member) and reservoir rocks (upper and lower Shuaiba).

Workshop Objectives

This workshop will enrich our knowledge in relation to regional and local geological commonalities and diversities. It will help in formulating and updating regional stratigraphic framework based on common stratigraphic and chronostratigraphic markers. The knowledge attained will enhance our ability to predict the source-reservoir-seal presence, its quality and distribution of the stratigraphic targets.

Benefits of Attending

Importantly, the workshop will expose the experience of exploring the stratigraphic traps from UAE, Oman and Saudi Arabia and best practices to develop it. Both oral and poster presentations make part of the workshop including presentations by invited keynote speakers. Additionally, core materials from various formations will be displayed and discussed. As the workshop will have a dedicated session on cores display from UAE, Petroleum Development Oman, and Saudi Aramco.

Who Should Attend?

This workshop is intended for geologists, geophysicists, petrophysicists, reservoir engineers, academic researchers, and decision makers working on the exploration, appraisal and development of carbonate hydrocarbon reservoirs.

 

Immersion into Shuaiba Formation to Maximize Production – Call for Posters Ends on 08 February, 2021

You are invited to prepare a poster display for presentation. If you are interested in participating, please send a short abstract to by 8 February 2021. All posters will be produced as pull-up banners and delivered by AAPG. There will not be any other format available for poster display.

Core Viewing Sessions Outline

During the workshop, there will be several opportunities to view cores from the Shuaiba Formation, covering different parts along the eperic Aptian paleo-platform; from the platform interior to the Baba Basin. Expert geologists will be on hand to explain the sedimentary features and reservoir characteristics and heterogeneity, and give an overview of how the Shuaiba Reservoir is being appraised and developed.

Al Dhafra Petroleum (APD) will be displaying a number of cores, focusing mainly on the Shuaiba Paleo carbonate system. The lithologies observed range from Rudist-rich floatstones to orbitolina pack to wackestone to mud dominated intervals with multiple occurrences of stylolithes and organic matter seams. Transition to more argillaceous materials and the Shale of the Nahr Umr will be part of the display. The cores will illustrate the last carbonate growth phase in the Lower Cretaceous and reflect paleo environments oscillating between distal to proximal ramps settings. Effects from higher order paleo depositional conditions are evidenced from the presence of multiple intervals where cementation and / or dissolution are pervasive.

ADNOC Onshore will have a core display for Shuaiba formation (Aptian 4), showing carbonate lithology, clear paleontological and petrophysical features, diagenesis, depositional environment and sequence stratigraphy.
