Abstract

This outcrop analog study of Lower Khuff Sequence KS6 (Saiq Formation) aims to capture lateral reservoir facies distribution during the initial phase of basin-fill. The Hercynian tectonic event triggered the erosion of Cambrian to Carboniferous strata in Oman and formed the topography of the Sub-Khuff Unconformity. When the Neo-Tethys Ocean flooded the Arabian Shield clastic sediments, the so-called "Basal Khuff Clastics" became preferentially deposited in possible paleo-lows. One main objective of this study was to unravel the effect of this paleo-relief on reservoir facies distribution within the overlying sediments.
