Go Outdoors with GEO 2020

Take the classroom outdoors with a choice of 4 field trips for hands on insight into the Middle East’s petroleum geology systems at GEO 2020. Here’s a quick rundown of the field trips available this coming year.

Saudi Arabia

Middle-Upper Jurassic Outcrop, Jabal Tuwaiq

Designed for a wide audience of geologists, geophysicists and paleontologists from beginners to experienced specialists, this 2-day trip is a unique opportunity to visit
The Middle-Upper Jurassic outcrops along the spectacular Tuwaiq Escarpments.


Awali Field

The Awali field was the first field to be discovered in the Arabian Peninsula in 1932. The one-day visit will give participants an overview of the structural history of the island, facies architecture, evidences of geomorphological processes active on the field and present day oil and gas infrastructure.


Lower Cretaceous Carbonates, Ras Al Khaimah

Perfect for anyone interested in reservoir geology, this 2-day trip covers a wide range of both carbonate depositional environments, their tectono-stratigraphic settings, and their relationships. The carbonates, which will be visited at outcrop, form the most prolific oil and gas producing reservoirs in the Middle East.


Haima Supergroup, Qarn Mahatta Humaid

This 3-day trip takes in the Qarn Mahatta Humaid area in central Oman, Haushi-Huqf High in the eastern continental margin of Arabia. The field trip will visit the outcrops of the Cambrian to Ordovician Haima Supergroup that host the majority of the country’s gas and condensate tight resources at great depth in the sub-surface.
