Jabal Akhdar, Ad Dakhiliyah, Oman
12 December 2019

Field Trip Leader: Andreas Scharf, Sultan Qaboos University (SQU)
Date: 12th December
Time: 7.30am – 7pm
Fee: $400
Registration for the field trip is now closed

The Jabal Akhdar in the Oman Mountains forms a ~90 km x 60 km large dome. The core of this dome consists of Precambrian sedimentary rocks, including source rocks. These rocks are separated by the overlying rocks by an angular unconformity. Rocks above this unconformity are the Permo-Mesozoic shelf carbonates of the Arabian passive margin. During the Late Cretaceous, the Arabian shelf was overthrust by the Semail Ophiolite and Hawasina rocks. Final doming was during the Eocene to Miocene. Thus, the Jabal Akhdar Dome provides insights to several deformation events.

This field trip will start near Al-Hamra and traverse the Jabal Akhdar Dome from the southern margin. Our road leads to a spectacular vista point at about 2000 m elevation. From this site we will study the regional folds in Precambrian formations as well the impressive cliffs of Permo-Mesozoic rocks. Within the core of the dome we will investigate Paleozoic refolded folds as well as syndepositional extensional faults within the Precambrian strata (Figs. 1 & 2). In Wadi Bani Kharous, the angular unconformity is superbly exposed (Fig. 3). The field trip will further inspect ductile and brittle deformation in the Mesozoic shelf carbonates (Fig. 4). Deformation is due to gravitational collapse and related extension immediately after ophiolite emplacement and final doming.

Fees: US$ 550 (Members) | US$ 750 (Non-members)

Trip Objectives:

Investigate the Cretaceous to Miocene carbonate platforms in Lebanon to draw analogy to Zohr, Explore the depositional environment of the Campanian source rocks, visualise the large structures of the Levant margin (e.g. the Qartaba structure) analogous to the offshore structures and have a concept of the scale.

Itinerary:

Departure time: 8:00 AM from hotel

Stop 1: Qartaba village: Overview of the stratigraphy and depositional environment of the Levant margin by looking at a panoramic view of the stratigraphic succession.

Stop 2: Laqlouq: quick stop to visualize the folding of the Qartaba anticline

Stop 3: Tannourine: Overview of the large E-W strike-slip faults and discussion on their geodynamic history and implications on the petroleum system

Stop 4: Tannourine-Douma road: Overview of the Cretaceous carbonate monocline and discussion on facies variation

Stop 5: Chekka quarry: Examine the Campanian thermogenic source rocks and the Paleocene depositional systems.

Stop 6: Ras Chekka: observe the Eocene carbonates, the Miocene reefs and the hiatus between the Lutetian-Burdigalian

End of the trip by 5:00 PM

Recent laboratory studies have revealed previously unknown behaviors in shale gas which unlock secrets of permeability and sweet spots in shale gas reservoirs. The presentation presents the findings and also goes into detail about how the new information can be applied in order to potentially improve recovery in reservoirs.

The gas transport in organic-rich shales involves different length-scales, from organic and inorganic pores to macro- and macrofractures. In order to upscale the fluid transport from nanoscale (flow through nanopores) to larger scales (to micro- and macrofractures), multicontinuum methodology is planned to be used.
