Northern Gulf of Suez, Geometry of Sandstone and Carbonate Reservoirs 3D Subsurface Analogue


April 14 - 16, 2020

Instructor : M. Darwish, PH.D


Sedimentologists, Exploration and Development Geologists; Geophysicists; Petrophysicists; Reservoir Engineers involved with Exploration and Development of Oil and Gas Reservoirs


The objectives of the course and field seminar is to examine the Paleozoic, Jurassic, Cretaceous and Tertiary Sandstone reservoirs and Eocene carbonate rocks in 3D outcrops at the western margin margins of the Gulf of Suez. These rocks represent analogues to the sandstone and carbonate hydrocarbon bearing reservoirs in various oil fields of the Gulf of Suez such as Sudr, Asl, Amer, and Northwest October Oil Fields. The model is also applied for the reservoirs and traps in the Western Desert. Additionally the structural style and habitats of hydrocarbon entrapments and elements (source, seal and reservoir rocks) could be clarified with those similar surface models. Fracturing system will be examined on various scales to help understanding of the range and pattern of deformation on seismic to core scale. Nature of carbonate fracturing and facies changes and their effects on reservoir performance will be discussed.
