Zagros Data Packages

We’ve added more value for our Zagros clients than in any other global region. We offer multiclient products focused towards both exploration and production.

The Zagros .... breath-taking scenery, fantastic geology, the most hospitable people you’ll ever meet. And a lot of very large, spectacular anticlines. Yet despite more than one hundred years of exploration, the Zagros region remains under-explored and under-developed. Don’t be misled by the apparent simplicity of map-scale folds; stratigraphic and structural heterogeneities are widespread, and there are structural complexities that simply can’t be identified remotely, even with today’s ultra-high resolution satellite imagery.

We have extensive “boots-on-the-ground” field experience in the Middle East, and since 2009 we have carried out twenty-five successful field campaigns in the northern Zagros, totalling many hundred field days, in over 40 license blocks, for 14 companies, covering an area of over 10,000 sq.km.

  • We have detailed outcrop knowledge of Cambrian-Pliocene stratigraphy, and a broad understanding of the structural complexities throughout the region.
  • We enjoy close collaboration with colleagues in Durham University with wide experience of the Iranian Zagros.
  • We work extensively with sub-surface interpretation based on integration of surface geology, satellite imagery, published and proprietary information, and sub-surface geophysical and well data.
  • Construction of cross-sections for regional and detailed anticline studies includes 143 balanced Zagros sections totalling more than 6,800 km.
  • We have comprehensive logistical capability, and our field teams are ready for bespoke single-client projects, as well as our own multi-client studies.

Zagros Regional Mapping (Iran, Iraq and SE Turkey)

Vector-based geological maps showing stratigraphy and structure for the entire Zagros range, ready for import into ArcGIS, GoogleEarth, Petrel, GoCad or your favourite G&G software. Featuring our high resolution ZOOM data (Zagros Outcrop Oriented Mapping) for the northern Zagros, based on very extensive field mapping throughout the region. Sub-surface interpretation is richly illustrated with a series of regional balanced cross-sections. Our stratigraphic correlation chart also includes surrounding regions in NE Syria, Saudi Arabia, UAE and Oman. The most comprehensive, structurally valid Zagros maps available.

Regional Appraisal of Fractured Reservoirs (NE Iraq)

Let us use our wide experience of fracture characterisation in all Cenozoic and Mesozoic reservoir units in NE Iraq to help you to high-grade potential acreage and bench-mark expected fracture potential. Includes summary tables and composite stratigraphic columns with our assessment of fracture ‘quality’ for 41 formations, reflecting the mechanical stratigraphy that we’ve studied extensively in outcrop throughout the Kurdistan region. Risking is aided by our appraisal of typical heterogeneities and variability seen laterally and vertically. Also includes 21 regional palaeo-environment maps and 21 regional fracture-quality maps.

Detailed Fracture Characterisation, Jurassic and Triassic (Kurdistan Region of Iraq)

Very detailed, comprehensive analysis of the Jurassic and Triassic fractured carbonate reservoirs, based on extensive fieldwork across the Kurdistan Region of Iraq. Based on a combination of traditional fracture transect measurements and leading-edge geospatial technologies (lidar, photogrammetry), acquired during more than 200 field days, this product provides an exhaustive set of quantitative fracture parameters that you can import directly into your fracture modelling workflow. Logged outcrop sections, including gamma-ray and mechanical properties, help to ensure valid correlation with the sub-surface.
