Inverted Basins and Deepest Discovered Oil in the Western Desert of Egypt
(1) IPR group, Cairo, Egypt.
Oil production decline for the Gulf of Suez, Egypt, is faced by increasing production from the western desert.
CreateceousJurassic inverted Basins play the major role in the recent discoveries in the Western desert.
The recent deepest oil discovered by IPR group at depth of 16000 feet is one of these inverted basins. It shows excellent reservoir parameters and very good oil column.
Excellent 3D seismic data quality helped to infer an accurate structure model and calibration to the regional structural framework of the area (Syrian Arc system) are the main contributors lead to the discovery.
This paper is a case history for true oil finder team and aggressive drilling company.
