This overview presentation introduces an extensive outcrop analog study that has been ongoing for more than three years on the Khuff-equivalent strata in the central Oman Mountains, Sultanate of Oman. This project is focussed on the sequence stratigraphy and the stratigraphic architecture of grainstone bodies as potential reservoir analogs for the subsurface. An integrated multi-dimensional, multi-disciplinary and multi-scale approach led to a series of nested reservoir models that allow to better understand controlling factors and to destill some general trends. The results may be directly used (1) to reduce uncertainties on near well- and field-scale correlation, (2) in reservoir modelling of analogous fields, and (3) as predictive rules in exploration. This overview is followed by detailed presentations on the various Khuff sequences.
