Palaeogeographic Maps of the Arabian Plate Foreland Basin

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 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 the regional context of their own acreage, which is often critical in exploration and development settings.

The maps can be purchased via credit card for low number (1-10) or via contract for full sets or bespoke sets.

Please note that we do also have mapping outside the presented area of interest – please contact Andy for details.

Palaeogeographic Maps of Iraq

Extensive palaeogeography database for the country of Iraq. Consisting of maps from the Precambrian to Recent, based on the sequence stratigraphic framework of Sharland et al. (2001, 2004).

92 sequences are defined, with a map for each of highstand, transgressive, lowstand and maximum flood systems tracts.

Cambridge Carbonate palaeogeographic maps covering Northern Arabia have been developed over the last 25 years.

Maps cover the whole of the Phanerozoic using data derived and collated from publicly available sources. In particular, the experience of co-producing the book “Petroleum Geology of Iraq” in 2010 led to acquisition of significant new or obscure data that has now been integrated into these maps.

Facies polygons that are found in the palaeogeographic maps are available as a GIS database that has been developed in ArcGIS.

The full set of maps is available, or a “bespoke” set could be tailored to a client’s needs and include key maps for the reservoir, source and seal intervals.

Northern Iraq Report

A report on the petroleum geology of Northern Iraq. Interpretation based upon thirty years’ experience in the area and published work.

The report provides an overview of the regional geology (tectonics, stratigraphy, biostratigraphy, facies models). It also presents an analysis of the region’s petroleum geology as a compilation of data in the public realm on reservoirs, source rocks, and seals that is useful for explorationists. As part of this, the main fields in the area and aspects of development and production geology are described in detail. Integration of the regional geology review and the petroleum geological data is provided as a set of play maps based upon the distribution of regional seals above reservoirs.

Facies polygons that are found in the palaeogeographic maps are available as a GIS database that has been developed in ArcGIS.
