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
