  Paleozoic successions in Saudi Arabia are exposed around and bordering the south, north, and northeastern edge of the Arabian shield. They are represented by the Wajid group in the south and by the Taymah, Tabuk, Qalibah, Huj, and Buraydah groups in the north and northeast. The Wajid group includes Dibsiyah, Sanamah, Khusayyan, and Juwayl Cited by: 6. Much previous work has concentrated on relatively distinct structural provinces within Syria. The goal of this paper was to synthesize the tectonic evolution of the entire country by integrating our previous interpretations with new regional structural maps, and incorporating significant additional lithostratigraphic by: The present work deals with the tectonic and structural evolution of the Western Desert as a part of the Arabian Platform as inferred from the available information including the stratigraphic sequence, the pattern of the unconformities, well information, seismic sections and the structural elements of the area. Location and major tectonic elements of the Arabian Plate and Iran. The present-day Arabian Plate is bordered in the north by the collision zones of the Zagros and Bitlis sutures, and by subduction along the Makran zone.

GeoArabia. The Middle East contains some 65% of the world’s remaining oil reserves and some 35% of its gas reserves. The vast majority of these reserves are located on the Arabian Plate. In , daily world oil production averaged 76 million barrels of oil per day (MM bopd) (H.E. Abstract: Paleozoic Stratigraphy and Hydrocarbon Habitat of the Arabian Plate The Paleozoic section became prospective in the early seventies when the enormous gas reserves in the Permian Khuff reservoirs were delineated in the Gulf and Zagros regions and oil . The present paper presents review of the stratigraphic and tectonic evolution of the Muglad basin, the primary emphasis on the tectonic evulsions and geology of the oil productive horizon. The basement, source, and reservoir rocks of this basin are not uniformly distributed, since this basin had periods of complex tectonic operation.

Abstract. The primary geologic structures of the northern Arabian plate in western Syria include the intracontinental Palmyride mountain belt and the interplate boundary of the Dead Sea transform fault system. The Palmyride belt strikes NE and is sandwiched between two relatively stable crustal blocks of the Arabian platform: Cited by: Geochemistry and Tectonic Evolution of A clear model of tectonic evolution of the Arabian shield is still an enigma.
