The sedimentary basins of the Middle East have been proved to contain vast hydrocarbon reserves, sourced by some of the most prolific petroleum systems in the world. This is the product of a range of factors, not least the long-lived, relative stability of the Arabian Plate and the presence of multiple, prolific organic source rocks. The economic importance of this area to global energy supply has ensured that there have been major efforts addressing the complexities of the various petroleum .. continue reading systems over the decades since the original discoveries. The petroleum system concept allows us to describe the relationship between a pod of active source rock and its associated hydrocarbon accumulations (Oil or Gas), as well as all the geological elements that contribute to these accumulations. While the initial major discoveries in the Middle East were associated with Mesozoic carbonates, subsequent exploration has also proven source rocks and reservoirs ranging in age from Precambrian to Tertiary. Additionally, the range of reservoir lithologies and trapping styles is also very varied. The result is that the Middle East hosts a diverse variety of petroleum systems, diverse in age and character and many have features unique to this region. By investigating petroleum systems, we can potentially reduce the risk of hydrocarbon charge and help define the commerciality of potential prospect and leads. Predicting oil versus gas, making predictions on oil quality or condensate-gas ratio can allow informed decisions to be made pre-drill. Advances have been made in the recent past to address subjects as diverse as, non-hydrocarbon gases, the potential for unconventional hydrocarbons, the role of hydrodynamics, the presence of tilted fluid contacts, the formation of microbial gases, phase prediction and in-reservoir fluid alteration processes. The purpose of this workshop is to address these and other subjects and to discuss the main challenges present in our current understanding of petroleum systems in the Middle East.
