The role of stylolites in the diagenetic evolution and resulting reservoir quality of an Upper Jurassic carbonate sour-gas reservoir, in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, was examined using petrographic, isotopic, fluid-inclusion microthermometric, and Raman spectroscopic analyses. Better reservoir quality in the crest than in the flank of the studi...
Article
Abstract Petrographic, stable-isotope and fluid-inclusion analyses were conducted on a Lower Cretaceous limestone reservoir, onshore Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates in order to compare the diagenetic processes and products in the oil zone (i.e. crest) versus water zone (i.e. flanks) of a giant oilfield anticline. The near-seafloor, shallow and inte...

Diagenesis of a Lower Cretaceous Limestone Reservoir in a Giant Oilfield, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates: Comparison Between the Crest and Flanks Mohammad Alsuwaidi1, Sadoon Morad1, Howri Mansurbeg3, Matteo Paganoni4, Daniel Morad2, Stephen Ehrenberg1, Amena Al Harethi6, Ihsan Al-Aasm5 1Petroleum Geosciences, Khalifa University of Science and Tec...
Article
This petrographic, stable isotopic and fluid inclusion microthermometric study of the Upper Jurassic limestones of an onshore field, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (UAE) compares diagenesis in flanks and crest of the anticline. The results revealed that the diagenetic and related reservoir quality evolution occurred during three phases, including:...
Conference Paper
This petrographic, stable isotopic and fluid inclusion microthermometric study revealed that the diagenetic and related reservoir quality evolution of the Upper Jurassic limestones across the studied field onshore Abu Dhabi, UAE, occurred during three phases, including: (i) near-surface to burial diagenesis, during which reservoir quality across th...
Article
The paper aims to provide a new field-scale depositional model for the Upper Jurassic Arab Formation, in order to enlarge the stratigraphic and facies architecture knowledge in the onshore Abu Dhabi (UAE). The goal is reached following a threefold workflow structured by: (i) subsurface high-resolution facies analysis; (ii) well correlations; and (i...

Cementation by quartz overgrowths and subsequently by carbonates is a very common global paragenetic phenomenon in sandstones of many basins that is poorly constrained in the literature. Integrated petrography, electron microprobe, stable isotopes, fluid inclusion microthermometry, and Raman spectroscopy have helped unravel the diagenetic condition...
Article
Microporosity in carbonate reservoirs is generated by the complex interplay between depositional and diagenetic processes. This petrographical, SEM, fluid-inclusion and isotopic study of a Lower Cretaceous carbonate reservoir, Abu Dhabi, UAE, revealed that: (1) micritization of ooids and skeletal fragments, which resulted in spheroidal (rounded) mi...
Article
The common presence of oil seepages in dolostones is widespread in Cretaceous carbonate successions of the Kurdistan Region of Iraq. This integrated field, petrographic, chemical, stable C, O and Sr isotopes, and fluid inclusion study aims to link dolomitization to the origin and geochemical evolution of fluids and oil migration in the Upper Cretac...
Article
Highlights: 1. We performed analyses on Lower Cretaceous carbonates from a hydrocarbon reservoir. 2. Stylolites could represent fluid flow pathways for brines and hydrocarbons. 3. Isotope and fluid inclusion data suggest fluxes hot basinal brines. 4. There are significant differences in diagenesis and between the oil and the water zone. Abstract...

Stylolites represent a typical diagenetic feature in Lower Cretaceous limestone reservoirs, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (UAE). In this study, an integrated petrographic, isotopic and fluid inclusion analysis has been accomplished on selected samples containing cements associated with stylolites from 4 wells from the crest (oil zone) and the fla...

Three-dimensional seismic data have been used to construct a series of scaled analogue models simulating the structural evolution of the Shah hydrocarbon Field. Models consisted of a set of layers of loose sand on two basal plates whose contact simulated a basement fault. Depositional history of the Shah structure was simulated in the model by prod...
