An integrated description of the stratigraphy and depositional environment of the “Main Pay” member of the Zubair Formation, Rumaila, Iraq

Boris Kostic

Introduction
•  Rumaila location and Redevelopment Plan objectives
•  Early Cretaceous stratigraphic, palaeogeographic and palaeoclimatic context

Database and workflow
•  Core and image log coverage and interpretation workflow
•  Hierarchical integrated sedimentological and palynological description: depositional processes, genetic elements and delta advance-retreat cycles
•  Use of image logs in interpreting away from cored wells and developing the depositional model

Business implications and conclusions
•  A depositional model for the “Main Pay” of Rumaila
•  Identifying bypassed oil through integrated subsurface description
