EAGE Workshop on the Mesozoic Intrashelf Basins of the Middle East

8 - 13 October
Ras al Khaimah, United Arab Emirates
Call for papers


EAGE Workshop on the Mesozoic Intrashelf Basins of the Middle East 

The first objective of this Workshop is to revisit the Mesozoic subsurface depositional models and their petroleum systems.

Focus is towards understanding the 3D subsurface depositional systems based on information from seismic data, drilled wells and the current understanding of their complexities in exploration.

The second objective is to study field outcrops in similar Mesozoic intrashelf basin settings to further improve 3D depositional models of both the Jurassic and Cretaceous reservoirs found in outcrops in Oman.  Read more about the objectives here

Intrashelf Basin Field Trip 

In addition to the 1-day of technical presentations, 5-days of field work is will complete the programme.  Delegates will be able to study intrashelf basin margin outcrops, stratal geometric configurations, impact of tectonics and reservoir distribution. Focus will also be both on the basin margins and deeper basin outcrops.  Read more here.
