Cambridge Carbonates have extensive experience working the Zechstein carbonates in the Southern and Northern Permian Basins of Europe. We offer clients a 2 day virtual, or in-person, workshop, which is supported by a virtual field trip to outcrops of the Zechstein of NE England. The aims of the workshop are to:

  • Provide an overview of the complexities and approaches to working in mixed carbonate-evaporite successions
  • Zechstein stratigraphy, sedimentology, and depositional environments.
  • Range of facies observed within a basin margin and isolated carbonate platform depositional context.
  • Impact of diagenesis, brecciation, fracture systems, and secondary porosity.
  • Key analogue fields, in particular from the Southern Permian Basin
  • The use of virtual outcrops to support subsurface work.
echstein workshop and virtual fieldtrip

We have collaborated with VOG, SafariDB and University of Aberdeen to provide a virtual fieldtrip of the NE England coastal outcrops. These remarkable outcrops demonstrate the Zechstein facies and later spectacular diagnesis which has substantially altered these reservoir facies.
