The Cambridge Carbonates database of palaeogeography maps for the Arabian Plate Foreland Basin have been extensively updated in 2021, with these revised maps available to purchase in pdf format. The palaeogeography maps are based on published data and more than 30 years experience in the Middle East and are produced within the Sharland et al. (2001, 2004) stratigraphic framework. For each 3rd order sequence, a map is available for the MFS, highstand, transgressive and lowstand system tract. In total >440 maps are available from the Precambrian through to the Quaternary.
Maps have been progressively constructed since 1993, using data derived and collated from publicly available sources. A voluminous quantity of information published in the last decade has been integrated.
Our maps are invaluable when evaluating acreage in bid rounds and allow detailed assessment of reservoir – seal – source combinations. The maps also provide our clients with a more regional understanding of their own acreage, which is often critical in exploration and development settings.
The maps can be purchased as a full set, or as a “bespoke” set which can be tailored to a client’s needs.
