We present a 3D Earth Model of the Arabian Plate and demonstrate its use for the rapid assessment of play potential, with an example from the Khuff gas play in eastern Arabia. The model encompasses all strata from basement to surface, and covers an area of c. 1,200 by 1,200km with a grid size of 10km. Based on our robust sequence stratigraphic framework and a database of publically available information, the model is divided into 82 layers corresponding to key 1st, 2nd and 3rd order depositional sequences. Applied to the Khuff gas play, this enables us to rapidly produce (and update with new data if needed) a regional play risk map for the Khuff and identify areas of higher potential for this play.
