New Insight on the Depositional Environment and Facies Atlas of Aptian in a Super Giant Carbonate Field in the Middle East

In order to establish facies, facies stacking patterns and the 3D architecture of a super giant field, onshore Abu Dhabi. Detailed sedimentological and petrographic core descriptions have been carried out using about 13000 ft of core from a total of 49 cored wells. In total 27 facies have been established using fabric and bio content. This paper presents a comprehensive facies atlas that contains for each facies a detailed description of fabric and bio content, core and thin-section pictures, petrophysical summaries and an interpretation of depositional environment.
