Introduction to the Petroleum Geology and Stratigraphy of the Arabian Gulf Basins

Audience

This course is designed for petroleum professionals who wish to become more informed about the petroleum geology of the oil and gas-bearing basins of the Arabian Gulf.

Content

  • The Tethyan petroleum realm, the Arabian Plate and its major tectonic elements, their geologic history and development
  • The Arabian-Iranian mega-basin and the tectono-stratigraphic evolution of the Arabian Gulf petroleum systems (source rocks, reservoirs, cap-rocks and traps)
  • The tectono-stratigraphic evolution and petroleum system of the following megasequences will be examined:
  • Mega-sequence One, Proterozoic, Eo-Cambrian (Vendian) to Cambrian
  • Mega-sequence Two, Cambrian to Carboniferous
  • Mega-sequence Three, the Permo-Triassic (Khuff)
  • Mega-sequence Four, the Jurassic to Mid Cretaceous
  • Mega-sequence Five, Mid Cretaceous to the Present Day
  • The Habitat of Oil and Gas: This section of the course describes key oilfields which hold the key to the petroleum systems of these Mega-sequences
