Carbonate Reservoir Geology of Oman

Course Description:

The striking geology of the Oman Mountains comprises Late Palaeozoic and Mesozoic carbonate successions that illustrate in detail the effect of sea level on carbonate deposition and are known to be prolific producers of oil and gas throughout the Gulf region. The successions include platform, margin, slope and deep marine carbonates, and the field trip also includes visits to modern examples of reef, lagoon and sabkha facies that have been modified by aeolian and evaporitic processes. The regional geology also displays structural features of interest, such as the Semail Ophiolite suite, which illustrates the tectonic development of the Tethyan Margin.

This field trip can also be delivered in conjunction with our Carbonate Reservoir Geology course.
