Shallow-Marine and Continental Palaeozoic Reservoirs of Oman

Course Description:

The Huqf Area of eastern Oman is the only area of the country where pre-Permian rocks are exposed in situ. Here we see glacio-lacustrine, fluvial and shallow marine clastic sediments, along with Permian shallow marine mixed carbonate and siliciclastic systems. Further north, in the Oman Mountains, the Permian Saiq carbonates, lateral equivalents of the famous Khuff Formation, are beautifully exposed.

This field trip can also be delivered in conjunction with our courses on Clastic Reservoir Geology and Carbonate Reservoir Geology.
