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).
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.
