Reservoir Heterogeneity of the Mishrif Formation, Rumaila Field, Southern Iraq

Michael Fuchs

The Upper Cretaceous Mishrif Formation is part of a large shallow epeiric carbonate platform developed on the Arabian plate. The Mishrif has a high economic importance as it contributes to the large hydrocarbon accumulations in the giant oil fields of southern Iraq. Results from a series of sedimentological, diagenesis, chemo/ biostratigraphic studies and an interpretation from a new 3D seismic volume have been used to construct a new sequence stratigraphic framework and highlight lateral heterogeneities.
