Many areas of the western Barents Sea host shallow as well as deep-seated hydrocarbon accumulations from which fluids are migrating to the sea floor. Evidence of past episodes of gas migration can be seen in the form of pockmarks on the sea floor as well as vertical pipes or chimneys on seismic sections.

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.

The modern carbonate-evaporite depositional environments along the Abu Dhabi shoreline and offshore Abu Dhabi belong to the few areas of the world where the geoscientist can observe the interplay between carbonate and evaporite sedimentation.

Supratidal (sabkha) to intertidal and shallow subtidal (microbial mat and peloid-skeletal tidal-flat) environments will be studied in the vicinity of Al-Qanatir Island.

Al-Qanatir Island

In the vicinity of the road to Al-Qanatir Island participants will be able to study a complete and undisturbed lateral facies succession from the upper supratidal to the lower intertidal and shallow subtidal:

  • Upper supratidal stranded beach ridges
  • Topographic highs, some cm above the adjacent upper sabkha environment
  • Upper sabkha (upper supratidal)
  • Surface covered by polygonally-cracked halite crust
  • Middle sabkha (middle supratidal)
  • Surface covered by finely-crystalline, whitish anhydrite polygons
  • Lower sabkha (lower supratidal)
  • Surface covered by shiny, sparkling gypsum crystals
  • Upper to lower intertidal microbial mat
  • Crenulated or crinkled microbial mat above gypsum mush facies
  • Blistered and pinnacle microbial mat
  • Polygonal and tufted microbial mat
  • Lowermost intertidal to shallow sub-tidal
  • Peloid-skeletal tidal-flat

Many of these depositional environments and facies successions correspond to those observed in cores from the subsurface of the Arabian Peninsula.

The main objective of this field trip is to offer participants the opportunity to study the structural style and fracturing of carbonate rocks analogous to reservoir units of the globally important UAE Oil Province. The clear exposure of these carbonate rocks in this tectonically complicated area provides a significant opportunity to study and explain the structural style and deformation history of the region. Although the carbonate rocks exposed in Jebal Hafit area are of Early Eocene–Miocene age (Rus, Dammam and Asmari Formations), the emphasis here is to study fractures pattern and fracturing mechanism with relation to the paleostress and the link to fractures conductivity.

The selected stops will demonstrate the stratigraphic relationship of the rock units and their fracture systems that have been developed during long geological deformation. There are significant similarities between these exposed rocks and those units seen in the Abu Dhabi Oil Fields by means of reservoir characteristics and fracture system and fracture related diagenesis (cementation/host rock alteration) with its impact on sealing potential.

Jebal Hafit, an elongated asymmetrical, double‐plunging, NNW‐SSW trending anticline with an elevation reaches up to ~ 1140 m high, is situated at the border between Oman and UAE. It extends ca 30 km in the direction NNW–SSE with average width of 4 to 5 km.

This lecture will discuss the differences between carbonates and siliciclastics from their chemical composition through their distributions in time and space. Building on these fundamental differences, we will explore the challenges carbonates pose to petroleum geologists in terms of seismic interpretation, reservoir quality prediction, field development, etc. Peppered with humorous personal stories, still raging academic debates, and the heartfelt frustrations of real industry professionals, the aim is to inspire students and young professionals to rise to the occasion and embrace the reservoir rocks that petroleum geologists love to hate.
