Brian Horsfield, Managing Director and CEO of GEOS4, will present a Keynote Talk "Predicting the Quality of Petroleums Generated by Lower Paleozoic Source Rocks, Middle East" at the AAPG workshop "Source Rocks of the Middle East", held in Abu Dhabi, 25-26 January 2016.
His talk will contrast the lateral variability in PhaseKinetics behaviour (GOR, Psat) of Silurian source rocks in Jordan and Libya, with reference to the occurrence of photic zone euxinia during source rock deposition, and its manifestation in GOR values. A contrast is drawn with the Devonian, and illustrated using a 2-D petroleum system model for the Ghadames Basin.
The workshop will address source rock characterisation, source rock kinetics, will look into regional plays and conventional vs unconventional techniques. Have a look at the program here.
GEOS4 offers data on PhaseKinetics and Late Gas Potential on Silurian source rocks from North Africa and the Middle East, find out more here.
